Fringe week sees Oundle thronged with entertainers of all genres’ in the town’s pubs, hotels, cafes and streets. You will find anything from tribute bands to poetry readings, the blues to thumping rock, the gentle sounds of classical French Parisian café music, swirling, kicking, tapping, clicking dance teams, comedy performances and maybe the odd Shakespearian ode or two drifting about the town. Once you arrive in Oundle during that week, day or night, there’s no escape, you will be entertained!
