Organisers of the Ventnor Fringe have confirmed the festival will return this year, with an extended event from July 23 to August 1.
Over ten full days the festival will once again be transforming spaces across the Island’s southernmost town to host it’s unique and creative programme of live events; spanning theatre, music, film and art.
Extending the event from it’s normal six to ten days, Festival Co-Director, Jack Whitewood said:
“While we’re confident that a gradual return of live events will take place as the year progresses, this year will undoubtedly
be different to normal. Extending to ten days will allow us to make up for the reduced capacities caused by social distancing, with acts giving additional performances instead.
"We’ll be spreading the whole event out, both physically and over a longer duration, to ensure it’s a safe and accessible experience for everyone."
Alongside many free events, shows are individually ticketed and sold through the Ventnor Exchange.
