Ventnor Fringe is the Isle of Wight’s unique multi award winning arts festival. Launched in 2010 the festival features theatre, comedy, cabaret, music and film screenings which take place throughout our vibrant town spanning warehouses and empty buildings to a harbour, churches and even local’s front rooms!

Catch a puppet show in a launderette, a midnight cellist concert in an 11th century chapel, morning yoga sessions in the park or a late night party in a network of abandoned tunnels. Whatever your age and whatever your budget, don’t miss this extraordinary week in Ventnor.

The eighth Ventnor Fringe will run from Tuesday 8th – Sunday 13th August 2017
