“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.

A New Home For 2024

After 7 years of transforming The Clubhouse into Buxton’s busiest fringe venue, they sadly can’t accommodate us this year, due to refurbishments.

We are currently working on plans for a new venue for Buxton Fringe 2024, and hope to open applications for our 19th season soon.

We expect the space on offer to be similar in size and technical capabilities to our venue at The Clubhouse, and you can see the plans for that here in the meantime.

To be kept up-to-date with our plans, you can sign-up to our Artist's mailing list.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us

About Us

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.
