Ventnor Fringe Festival 2019Book
Ventnor Fringe Festival on the Isle of Wight is a charming and quirky outpouring of creativity which offers something for everyone.
Taking place between 23 and 28 July, you can expect a six day extravaganza made up of pop up bars, boutique venues and more than 300 artists from across the world – made up of musicians, comedians, artists, and creative performers of all kinds.
This year, the award-winning festival celebrates its 10th anniversary and so promises to be bigger and better than ever. 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.
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.
The festival as a whole is free to enter, but some acts may charge admission prices.
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.
