A 6 day wonderland of pop-up bars and boutique venues, featuring more than 300 artists from across the world! Ventnor Fringe is the Isle of Wight's unique multi award winning arts festival.

Theatre, comedy, music and film events take place right across the picturesque town spanning warehouses and empty buildings to a harbour, churches and even local’s front rooms! 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.

Whatever your age and whatever your budget, don’t miss this extraordinary week in Ventnor.

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

"...rapidly becoming the country's most surprising and inspirational multidisciplinary arts festival" The Sunday Times
