About

A wonderland of pop-up bars and boutique venues, featuring more than 300 artists from across the world!

A unique Island tradition, during Ventnor Fringe the Isle of Wight’s southernmost town is totally transformed into a whole world of pop up venues and bars in every conceivable space, hosting over 100 different shows.

From the best new comedians and up and coming bands to truly barmy events like improvised hip hop in a Laundrette or a 1930’s Parisian ‘Book Bus’ the Fringe has something for everyone! Best of all you can pick and choose which ticketed events to see or simply explore the many free events on offer.
