Tickets for Ventnor Fringe 2019

Admission to the Fringe is free, but there are approximately 100 shows on sale at a range of prices starting from £5. The 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 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.

Isle of Wight Accommodation
