Due to ticket sales of only 300, the organisers have made the decision to cancel the festival event rather than only have a few hundred people creating atmosphere.

However, the party has moved to The Nightingale Hotel, Shanklin instead.

All shows except for Magus Utopia and Mechanical Menagerie will be performing at the Nightingale Hotel.

Three function rooms, three Bars, outside tents, all DJs, all the bands, everything is at the Nightingale!

Three Nights of Sinful Nightingale Circus Parties!!

Day/Night Ticket £10 only!

Family day on Sunday

A full list of the performers and shows will be posted soon.

The Isle of Wight Gothic Circus Festival is the perfect chance to escape for three days and nights and immerse yourself in all things Steampunk, Victorian and Gothic!

Head over to either EventBrite or Skiddle to book your tickets now.

On the back of last year’s success the Festival organisers are now treating us to a fantastic three days and nights of freaky fun for all ages from 24th to 27th May 2019 at Combley Farm, Downend.

Organised by the fabulous team from the Nightingale Hotel, the Gothic Circus Festival boasts a whole host of entertainment for young fans of steampunk, with family-friendly shows in the Gothic Circus Big Top, kids workshops, face-painting, fairground rides and more.

There’s even a family camping area for those with young ones to enjoy a quieter experience, plus a children’s playground, with the area only accessible by families.

Back where all the action is taking place, there’ll be an open air stage with live music from international, as well as some of your favourite alternative Isle of Wight bands.

Already confirmed are Kalidia, Mr Strange, Crash and Burn, Road 2 Mayhem and V2A.

Coming all the way from Thailand is the legendary DJ, Graham Gold. Some might remember Graham from the Peach nightclub at Camden Palace, or his Kiss fm show, or perhaps if you have been lucky enough, the Full Moon parties in Thailand.

Friday and Saturday feature the Isle of Wight’s very own DJs, Mewtant and Crabbie. They’ll ensure you have the authentic Festival experience by keeping you up and dancing late into the night.

For the over 18s there are some very specials treats indeed lined up at the Isle of Wight Gothic Circus Festival.

The over 18s tent – only accessible with separate tickets – features some of the best Cabaret, Burlesque and Fetish shows, not to mention a restaurant serving dinner alongside the exclusive shows – these guys have thought of everything!

The carefully-selected performers know how to put on a show and entertain. They’ll transport you away from the humdrum of everyday life to an exciting place of positive energy and excitement.

There are plans for several smaller tents, where you’ll be able to watch in awe as the trapeze, silk, juggling and hoop experts put on shows, as well as divulge their secrets on how to learn the skills they use to entertain.

As you might expect at a Festival, there’ll also be stalls, food stands, fun fair rides and plenty of games and other shenanigans to keep you occupied.

If you like the idea of turning up and not going home until the party has finished, this year there’s the added advantage of camping available onsite, with toilets and fresh water.

Don’t want to dig out your camping gear and lug it from home? Book a VIP Gothic Tent, with special VIP bar area, toilets and showers.

Early bird tickets are available until 1st March – after that the prices will increase by 30%, so forget going out this weekend, save your pounds and book before the end of the month.

All under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
