A unique creative endevour

Ventnor Fringe boasts a diverse and loyal following, which is united by a strong sense of community, a love of cultural experiences and a willingness to try something new.

A true example of DIY spirit in action, Ventnor Fringe has grown from a small gathering organised by local students, to the Isle of Wight’s most inventive creative gathering, receiving rave reviews and featuring in the likes of The Sunday Times & The Times, Independent, Guardian, Evening Standard, Metro, Clash, Crack, Time Out and many more.

Be part of an amazing story

Ventnor Fringe started in 2010, organised by a group of local teenagers. Since then, the festival has grown very gradually, carefully establishing itself and adapting to the needs of the local community.

We now host over 150 different acts each year spanning every creative discipline, performing in pop up venues throughout Ventnor. Over 50% of performers and 30% of our audiences were visitors from the mainland and abroad in 2019, the highest numbers yet.

In 2019 the Fringe box office broke a new record of 6,500, the first time time ticket sales outnumbered the population of the town!
