“One of the best-run venues of any Fringe anywhere

- Fringe Guru

Welcome to Underground

Presenting over 200 performances of the finest theatre, comedy and music shows, from across the world, at the beautiful Buxton Fringe, every July.

Fringe 2020...?

Coronavirus update

Like everyone, we're watching the situation unfold. Our programme is on hold, and our physically presense at this year's fringee is likely to be stripped back or cancelled. But, as a tiny organisation we have the advantage of being nimble, so we've not officially called if off yet. If we can find a way to deliver something to our community, we'd like to.

If we can be there, safely, we will.

Check back in early June for an update, or follow us online, and in the meantime, stay safe.

And to those key workers and NHF employees working for all of us:

Thank you.

Underground has managed award-winning theatres and performance venues since 2006. Set up by two teenagers to bring more diverse performance into their home town of Buxton, Underground now runs the premiere and most popular venues on the Buxton Fringe, as well as managing spaces at other Festivals.

In 2017 we opened our brand new space above The Clubhouse - with a purpose-built new theatre, box office and Fringe Club. This formed our new base alongside larger shows in our satellite space at the Arts Centre Studio.
