2048 1364 Ventnor Fringe

It’s that time of year again! Today we’re extremely excited to announce our first wave of acts for Ventnor Fringe Festival 2017!


We’ve had more applications to the festival than ever before in a huge range of creative disciplines spanning circus to poetry and we’re now hard at work putting together the programme.

Tickets are now available for a selection of events including the Extraordinary Travelling Film Show who will be returning to Ventnor Park with an outdoor screening of the Oscar and BAFTA winner LA LA LAND, BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award Winner BRIGHDE CHAIMBEUL will be hosting a special show at St. Catherine’s Church and Atmos Music take over The Parkside on Sunday night with LITTLE MAMMOTHS headlining, fronted by Matt Owens of Noah And The Whale.

Elsewhere the IW Venue campaign presents a beautiful church show with CHARLIE DORE and JOAN ELLIS returns with DONNA JONES MBE to the Fringe with new shows.

We’ll be adding loads more events in coming days and weeks so keep your eyes peeled for more announcements on our social media pages or by joining our newsletter.

Applications for the Free Fringe are still open for those who wish to take part.

We can’t wait to welcome performers and audiences to our beautiful seaside town for another magical weekend of theatre, music, performance art and strange happenings this August. Help us spread the word !
