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.
