VENTNOR FRINGE FESTIVAL 2019: 10th Anniversary Edition

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.

Details of our programme will be released in the Spring.

Artists Registration is now open! If you would like to take part please go to our Ventnor Fringe website.

"One hell of a homegrown festival....an authentic, bohemian festival experience" The Independent
