Vetnor Fringe 2019 Headquarters
Ventnor Fringe’s base is the Ventnor Exchange; this is where you can down a craft beer while flicking through some vinyl. While still a babe compared with the Edinburgh Fringe, the Ventnor Fringe is the Isle of Wight’s very own urban music taking place in a range of eclectic venues across town.
Things To Do on the Isle of Wight
The Isle of Wight has a wonderful history with Carisbroke Castle, where King Charles I was locked up prior to his execution, and Queen Victoria’s beloved Osborne House both run by English Heritage and open to the public. Read more about what you can do on the island in Isle of Wight Holidays: Walks, Pubs and Victoria.
