Merry Christmas and all that

Errwood Reservoir, Goyt Valley - December 26th 2010
Sorry we failed to meet a self-imposed target of updating the Blog every weekend. Internet connectivity problems are an excuse; turned-out that a new cable (£4.99 from Intellect Computers on Buxton Market Place) solved the problem after a frustrating week or so. Intellect haven't paid for the plug (though we paid for the lead) - a crude marketing technique to see if they (or anyone else) reads this thing. Frankly if you are reading this on Christmas Eve - well what kind of a life are you leading?
Up to four live entries for Buxton Fringe 2011. This is the most pre-Christmas entries we have had since records began. Further evidence that Fringe 2011 is on track to be the biggest Buxton Fringe ever.
Entry 4 came from our friends the Tideswell Male Voice Choir. They need little introduction - they will certainly fill St John's Church on July 20th.
Intriguing is entry 3 from the the Library Theatre Touring Company - I Take Your Hand in Mine is based on letters between Anton Chekov and Olga Knipper. They knew each other for 6 years - his ill-health kept him in Yalta whilst she was in Moscow establishing the Moscow Art Theatre. There will be four performances between 15-23 July at the United Reformed Church.

Mark Niel was in Buxon for 2010 - he and his friends from Tongue in Chic brought a lot of energy to Fringe Sunday as well as shows as Nat's Kitchen. There is a collection of poetry now available. For more about "Reflections from Mirror City" an anthology featuring the best of Tongue in Chic including John Hegley, Zena Edwards, AF Harrold, Paul Lyalls, Rachel Pantechnicon and many more go to
