Early Tips

Johnny Facade (foreground) opens with his new show "Parannoyance" on Saturday, July 11th in the Pauper's Pit.
It's a bit unfair picking out shows after just two days but there is a danger that you'll miss some really good things - so it's part of our duty to alert you to whatever it is that is creating some early waves.

We'd already tipped High Jinx - with their mixture of magic and circus (all in the Pauper's Pit!) Fringe reviewer John Wilson thought it great fun. There are further shows on 18-20 July.

Katie Green presents an impressive and moving original dance piece - Lost and Found - at Buxton Community School. Just two more performances on 10th and 11th - this is one not to miss.

Dulcinea entertained at the Fringe launch party and their haunting, beautiful songs are well worth checking out - at the Barrel Room on 14-16 July. Also in the Barrel Room is Best Man Speech - which is compelling; by turns funny and shocking and well acted. Two more performances on the 10th and 12th.

There's loads of free art to see - don't save it for a rainy day. The Buxton Museum houses the Derbyshire Open Exhibition (amongst other things) which is always ambitious and wide-ranging. The newish picture-framing shop Apertures, 51 Buxton High Street, is showing some prints by Kelly Dyson in an exhibition called Don't Wake Me Up. Our reviewer, Stephanie Billen, was much-impressed.

Our reviews team is working hard to get reports posted as quickly as possible - go the Fringe 2009 section of the website for further tips.
