What is the Ventnor Fringe?

A unique Island tradition, during Ventnor Fringe the Isle of Wight’s southernmost town is totally transformed into a whole world of pop up venues and bars in every conceivable space, hosting over 100 different shows.

From the best new comedians and up and coming bands to truly barmy events like improvised hip hop in a Laundrette or a 1930’s Parisian ‘Book Bus’ the Fringe has something for everyone! Pick and choose which ticketed events to see or simply explore the many free events on offer. Find out more about what’s on here: What’s On – Ventnor Fringe (

Ventnor Fringe returns 22nd – 31st July 2022

Volunteering at The Fringe

Ventnor Fringe would simply not be possible without the support of many dedicated volunteers who travel from near and far to be part of the festival family and ensure the event runs safely and smoothly. There are many roles to choose from whilst volunteering with us at the Fringe from box office administration, event stewarding, to technical support, marketing and site build and creative.
“When volunteering at The Ventnor Fringe you completely immerse yourself in the celebration of all art forms, meeting the kindest and most talented people you could imagine all in the most amazing town. Giving my time to The Fringe was one of the greatest decisions I’ve made, it’s my favourite week of the year and I have a family there for life.” – Amy
Volunteering is a great way to make new friends, watch free shows, learn new skills and help make something very special happen on the Isle of Wight.
