After a turbulent two years of disruption due to Covid, the Buxton Fringe were delighted to again be able to hold their AGM in person this week.
Stephen Walker was reinstated as chair alongside Viv Marriott as vice-chair and Sandra Jowett as treasurer at the AGM, held at The Green Man Gallery.
Carole Garner has stepped up to become Fringe Secretary, taking over the role from Gaye Chorlton, who will be Information Desk Manager at the 2022 event.
Looking back at success of the 2021 event, Stephen said: “After a year online with very few events happening live, it was great to get back to a predominantly live Fringe, and the joy of live performance.”
He thanked Fringe venues for their continued care and caution and praised the high standard of theatre and other events.
“Given the difficulties of getting together to rehearse and prepare shows… the quality of work on offer was wonderful - thank you to everyone who did anything to help make Fringe 2021 happen.”

Next year’s Fringe is scheduled to take place from 6 to 24 July 2022 with the website opening for entries from 1 December. See https://buxtonfringe.org.uk/entrants.html for further information.
