Full steam ahead for Festival Fringe

With events for July’s Buxton Festival Fringe rapidly building up, Fringe organisers have re-launched the Fringe website (buxtonfringe.org.uk) to be even friendlier and easier to use.

As one of England’s largest open access-arts festivals, Buxton Festival Fringe, which this year takes place between July 8-26, has become an ever more complex feat of organisation with the website, first created in 2002, housing a wealth of information including how to take part, what’s on listings, news and photos, videos, venue details, community news and Fringe history.

Fringe chairman Keith Savage said: “The Fringe is lucky to be able to call on a group of skilled people who voluntarily reviewed the structure and content of the website in its entirety.

“The hours of work that went into this are beyond counting but we hope that what we have reflects two elements of the Fringe: we aim to be as professional and organised as we can; we also want to project the joy and excitement of being one of the biggest arts festivals in England.”

The Fringe, a charity run by volunteers, receives valuable support from the local community and from its sponsor and partner, The University of Derby.
