Ventnor Fringe returns for ninth year

Ventnor Fringe returns for its ninth year – what will you find at the fringe? 

The Ventnor Fringe continues to develop as one of the UK’s fastest growing fringe festivals.

There’s more than 70 shows and hundreds of performers signed up to take part in the week long celebration from the August 7 – 12.

At the forefront of Ventnor’s emerging cultural scene for nearly a decade, the Fringe
transforms the town with performances and events taking place in every conceivable space.

From improvised hip hop in a Laundrette, to a rooftop cellist concert, a 1930’s Parisian Book Bus – to secret venues hosting some of London’s most exciting new spoken word acts.

Audience members can choose which ticketed events to see or simply explore the many
events that make up the Free Fringe.

The Fringe is organised by the Ventnor Exchange, an arts organisation which has also run a theatre, craft beer bar and record store in the town since 2014.

It was recently described by Darren Henley, CEO of the Arts Council as, “a brilliant cultural hub firmly embedded in its community”.
