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.

“One hell of a homegrown festival….an authentic, bohemian festival experience” The Independent

In 2019 the Festival celebrates its tenth year and sees more than 300 artists from around the world descend on the town to deliver over 150 performances of 90 different shows.

“…rapidly becoming the country’s most surprising and inspirational multidisciplinary arts festival” The Sunday Times
