23-28 July 2019 - 

Celebrating its 10th Anniversary in 2019 the Ventnor Fringe is a week long festival which sees the Island's southernmost town totally transformed into a whole world of pop up venues and bars in every conceivable space, hosting over 100 different shows. 

From outdoor cinema, the best new comedians and gigs in the harbour to the truly barmy events like improvised hip hop in a Laundrette or a 1930's Parisian 'Book Bus' the Fringe has something for everyone!  Best of all you can pick and choose which ticketed events to see or simply explore the many free events on offer.

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

Theatre, comedy, music and film events take place right across the picturesque 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.

Described by The Sunday Times as "...rapidly becoming the country's most surprising and inspirational multidisciplinary arts festival" and The Independent as 'One hell of a homegrown festival....an authentic, bohemian festival experience".

Getting to the Ventnor Fringe is easy via Southampton.

By car - catch the ferry to East Cowes and then head south on Dover Road. Take the A3021, Briddlesford Rd, A3056 and B3327 to Steephill Down Rd in Ventnor. It will take about 30 minutes.

On foot - catch the Red Jet to West Cowes. From here, Southern Vectis operate frequent buses (service 1) to Newport where you can change at the bus station for Ventnor (service 3). Taxis are also available outside the West Cowes Red Jet terminal. For car hire, we recommend Enterprise - they will pick you-up from the Red Jet if you tell them your arrival time.
