Buxton Fringe Festival: 2
Well we have returned once again from the fantastic Buxton Fringe Festival and we must say a huge thank you to Keith Savage and all of his committee for organizing this super friendly fringe and of course to all of the staff at Underground Venues, as well as all of our friends like Sam Slide and Shadow Syndicate. Buxton Fringe Festival really is the friendliest of all Fringe Festivals and what better way to spend a few days than in the glorious sunshine (mostly) of the Peak District.
We had a fabulous response to Bouncers, selling out on the first performance and setting a record breaking turn around on our last performance. The Bouncers boys entertained audiences in the bandstand on three nights as well as at the Arts Centre Studio.
It is always a pleasure to perform at Buxton and the awards on the final day are a lovely way to say goodbye and thanks. We were pleased to see Darren Walsh get two nominations, we caught both of his shows and they were superb. Our great friend Marcus also got a well-deserved award for his Kate Butch show.
We were especially delighted to receive three nominations for excellence for our production of Vincent River by Phillip Ridley. One for the production itself, directed by Jack West and Simon N W Winterman and one each for the extraordinarily talented cast of Sam Bates as Davey and Jessica Newborough as Anita. There performances were described as searingly honest by Robbie Carnegie.
Jessica then went on to win the award for excellence in a female performance (Vincent River). Sam Bates collected the award on Jessica’s behalf and then presented it to her on our return to Nuneaton at a rehearsal for A Chorus of Disapproval.

Buxton Fringe Festival: 1
This month we will be heading to the Peak District to take part in the fantastic Buxton Fringe Festival. Last year we were unable to be at Buxton because of our commitments to the Edinburgh Fringe but it is a great feeling to be returning to Buxton. It is such a friendly festival and we have got to know some wonderful people.
We are very pleased to be working once again with the fantastic team at Underground Venues who have looked after us at every one of our Buxton Visits. Check out our twitter @SuddenImpulseTC to get regular updates live from the festival. We will be sharing daily Buxton blogs on the website under the Buxton Fringe Festival section.
