THE Pavilion Arts Centre and Buxton Opera House will be presenting an event on June 10 in celebration of the very best of the Buxton Festival Fringe.

Fringe First, presented in association with the Fringe, reunites some of the Fringe award-nominees and winners from the 2010 Fringe in one evening showing the variety and talent on offer each year.

It features artists from all the Fringe’s categories. There’s music ensemble Fordante, presenting a selection of popular film and light classical music while youth group Shadow Syndicate will give a preview of their show for this year’s Fringe, Fugee by Abi Morgan.

Comedian Gerry Howell gives the audience a first look at his latest show Moonshine And Trumpery and The Shakespeare Jukebox will be making their first appearance on stage (instead of outside the Opera House) with a selection of ad hoc scenes from the Bard. Piff the Magic Dragon will dazzle with a display of close-up illusion. Finally, for those in fear of attack from the undead, there’s the hilarious How To Survive A Zombie Apocalypse.

The evening will be compered by popular singer-songwriter Sam Dunkley. Tickets for Fringe First are £8 and £10 with discounts available. Call 0845 127 2190 for further information.
