5 Best Selling Shows at Ventnor Fringe…So far!

1000 1000 Ventnor Fringe

It’s June, which means the countdown to Ventnor Fringe has begun! With less than 8 weeks to go we take a look at the hottest tickets in town so far.

With the full programme of shows expected to be on sale by 21st June, there are undoubtedly still gems to be discovered, but with a wide range of events now announced we thought it was time for us to take a look at those shows selling fastest, which you might not want to leave too long to book up for.

1.)  Flo & Joan

Off the back of a countrywide tour, musical comedy duo and sisters Flo & Joan are heading to Ventnor Fringe for the first time to test an hour of new material. You might have seen them in a certain building societies TV ads but it was watching folk ballad inspired  ‘Lady In the Woods’ that got us hooked – “And she produced milk like you’ve never seen” Book Tickets

Where? The Magpie, Parkside

When? Friday 23rd July, 7pm


2.)  Joe Black: Decopunk

Isn’t it about time drag made an appearance at the Fringe? It seems like you lot agree as these tickets are flying out like death drops – sickening! At the time of writing there are just 48 tickets left! Infamous cabaret misfit and RuPaul’s Drag Race UK’s miscreant Joe Black invites you to indulge in a gloriously raucous gin soaked musical cabaret extravanganza. It’s going to be fabulous.

Where? The Magpie, Parkside

When? Friday 23rd July, 9pm

3.)  The Greatest Showpeople!

Back in 2019 Parkside become the home of a beautiful new black and white Big Top called The Magpie. It hosted some brilliant shows but there was a notable lack of circus for a circus tent! Well, no more, as Newcastle’s finest Let’s Circus bring The Greatest Showpeople! to Ventnor Fringe. Expect acrobatics, trapeze, comedy and juggling in this family friendly extravaganza. There is more capacity for this one, but tickets are selling fast and it looks likely to be one of this year’s best sellers.  Book Tickets
