Fringe chairman Keith Savage said: “We’re delighted that we’ve been able to keep our entry fees low, thanks to the generous sponsorship of the University of Derby at Buxton, as well as supporters including Trevor Osborne of the Crescent Spa Hotel Project, the Cavendish Arcade, the Old Hall and High Peak Borough Council, and Fringe Friends.”

Anyone can enter the fringe, from professional theatre companies and comedians trying out material for Edinburgh, to new performers and amateur groups.

There is full guidance for entrants on the website http://www.buxtonfringe.org.uk including special marketing tips and information about venues. Entrants organise their own venue and enter the Fringe online.
