Ventnor Fringe School Visits

School Trips to Ventnor Fringe

We want to enable more young people to experience the festival, inspiring the next generation of audiences and performers and shining a light on careers in the arts.

Visit the Circus 

This year Ventnor Exchange is very excited to have co-commissioned a brand new show with Revel Puck Circus, a young and dynamic company based in East London who are passionate about making the art-form accessible to everyone.

Their new show ‘The Nose Dive Assembly’ is premiering at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park before travelling, Big Top and all, to the Isle of Wight especially for Ventnor Fringe!

Featuring a nine-person cast, and a twenty-two strong touring company – The Nose Dive Assembly will immerse audiences in the signature world of the Revel Pucks, through a world-class and playful production packed full of large-scale contemporary circus. Expect high wire walkers, teeterboarders, bespoke apparatus and the only female Wheel of Death duo in the country!

There is also an option available to meet with members of the cast, backstage team of staff from the Festival before or after the show.

Join us for an end of term treat for your school at the Circus! Perfect for young people of any age.
