Ventnor Fringe Festival

Ventnor Fringe Festival returns 8 - 13 August 2017

The Ventnor Fringe and its sister event, the Ventnor International Festival, together welcome more than 300 artists to the Island's southernmost town every August for a unique celebration spanning six days.

A wonderland of pop-up bars and boutique venues, events take place right across the picturesque town spanning warehouses and empty buildings to a Harbour, woodland glaze,churches and even local's front rooms!

Where else could you catch a ventriloquist show in a launderette, a midnight cellist concert in an 11th century chapel or a late night swing party in a network of abandoned tunnels?

Both Festival span theatre to comedy, music to film and offer a chance to discover the most exciting artists of the future, at the very beginning of their careers. Whatever your age and whatever your budget, don't miss this extraordinary week in Ventnor!

Described by The Sunday Times as "...rapidly becoming the country's most surprising and inspirational multidisciplinary arts festival" the Ventnor Fringe hosted well over 300 performers in 2015 with record breaking ticket sales.
