The popular arts festival is open for applications from today (Tuesday, December 1).

Fringe chairman Stephen Walker said: “We are ready to welcome events in whatever form creative people come up with.”

For those wishing to enter, there will be a flat free of £50 right up to the final deadline for the printed programme of April 18, 2021.

This summer, the festival went online to circumvent lockdown caused by the pandemic and attracted more than 100 entrants.

Fringe webmaster Dan Osborne, curator of the online system, said: “We know that people are considering entering all sorts of different types of event from live physical shows to online ones or even a combination of the two.

"The Fringe website’s revised entry form makes it simple to create the event that you want. Tweaks to the way we present listings will also ensure that greater prominence is given to online links and in the case of free shows, information on how audiences can make donations.”

Next year’s Fringe runs from July 7 to 25. For more information, go to www.buxtonfringe.org.uk.
