Ventnor Fringe Festival is shaping up to be the most diverse, interesting and creative it’s ever been, says Jack Whitewood, and the celebration we all need after 2020
Ventnor Fringe Festival
Ventnor Fringe Festival was founded in 2010 by a group of young people living in Ventnor. Taking place in the summer holidays each year, the festival has grown each year, with hundreds of acts having performed in a weird and wonderful selection of venues around the town.
