The Ventnor Fringe Festival on the Isle of Wight is a charming, quirky, outpouring of creativity which offers something for everyone.

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 abandoned tunnels. Whatever your age and whatever your interests, don’t miss this extraordinary week as the historic town of Ventnor opens its doors to musicians, comedians, artists, and creative performers of all kinds.

This year, the festival takes place from 7 -12 August 2018, and it’s expected to be bigger than ever. The Sunday Times have described it as “rapidly becoming the country’s most surprising and inspirational multidisciplinary arts festival” and The Independent called it “an authentic, bohemian festival experience”.

Ventnor Fringe Festival Line Up

Ventnor Fringe draws artists and performers of every variety from all over the world, so expect an eclectic, exciting mix of performance styles and genres. There’s always plenty of music, lots of good food, a convivial atmosphere, and more entertainment than you could possibly consume in just one day (so plan your schedule wisely!). The programme is packed with acts and events, including award-winning plays, internationally acclaimed musical artists, storytelling sessions, dance performances and creative workshops.

Tickets

The festival as a whole is free to enter, but some acts may charge admission prices.

Getting There

Wightlink can ship you to the Isle of Wight in style, and from there it couldn’t be easier to catch the bus from our ports in Ryde, Yarmouth, or Fishbourne to Ventnor for the festival.
