Ventnor Fringe

Free Fringe Applications

Free Fringe Applications

Perform in Fringe spaces across the town.

Some of the most exciting events that happen at the fringe are the busking in the streets, happenings in the launderette, hair dressers or on the beach!

Busking is best suited to performers who like to set up and play anywhere, anytime and see what crowds gather to the commotion. We have some perfect public spots around the town organised for buskers.

The Free Fringe is for the artists that want to be free to roam and perform on the street and in unique spaces but also to show case their work in our main Fringe bar venues. As the main social hubs and central gathering points during the Fringe, our bars offer a great place to chill out in the daytime and party in the evenings, we can provide multiple slots for your band or project at Parkside Bar or The Observatory Bar.
