It’s been a fantastic summer on the Island this year, with record-breaking sunshine and a packed schedule of festivals and events, including the biggest Ventnor Fringe to date! But with Autumn settling in, it can begin to feel a lot quieter. Fear not though, we have a packed programme of events to keep you entertained throughout the coming months!
Don’t forget we’re also open 7 nights a week from 5pm, with special offers on our German beer selection throughout the month for Oktoberfest

Toby Thompson: No Time Like The Present
Sunday 2nd October
Following a three week residency at the Ventnor Exchange Toby Thompson will be performing a first scratch performance of a new piece of work created during his time on the Isle of Wight.
‘No Time Like The Present’ is a look at the importance of living in the moment, and what it means to be in the here and now.
Toby Thompson is one of the most inspiring performers we’ve ever worked with, with a uniquely poetic craft and delivery style which is incredibly hearfelt and raw. We can’t wait to show you what he’s been working on.
