The Fringe started some 10 years back as an  experiment by six 18-year-olds on the Isle of Wight. Similar, but far smaller, to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Ventnor is a showcase for emerging talent across multiple venues.

A place to discover the weird and wonderful, entry is through one, great value wristband.

Tickets for Ventnor Fringe 2021

The Isle of Wight festival has grown enormously over the last few years. In 2010, the fringe attracted a mere 200 attendees and these were mainly from the town and the island. Now, there are 3,500 tickets available for purchase over the six days of the festival. You can book tickets here.

Vetnor Fringe 2021 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.
