5 GREAT THINGS TO DO AT THE FRINGE FOR FREE!

Free Fringe Producer Jack Barnes takes a look at what’s on offer
 
 
DISCOVER THE UNIQUE BOOK BUS
 
The book bus is a beautiful 1930’s parisian bus that has been converted into the perfect bookshop. Each day there will be a wide range of fun activities for the whole family, from storytellers and musicians to theatre productions. The book bus is an amazing creative hub and the perfect place to escape to. Open from 10am – 6pm daily (plus a mystery late night event perhaps!)
 
SEE A GIG IN A LAUNDRETTE
 
Ever seen a band perform a packed out gig in a laundrette? Well now’s your chance. Most evenings at the Fringe there will be new, up close and personal gig in ventnors local laundrette, and of course, it’s free!
 
CELEBRATE CARNIVAL
 
Join the colourful madness of the Ventnor Carnival on their 129th year parading through our streets on Wednesday and Saturday evening and witness the crazy characters that Ventnor has to offer!
 
CUTTING EDGE ART IN LOCAL’S FRONT ROOMS
 
Ventnors very own art_house_life is one of many homes that will be transformed and opened up to the public to present brand new artwork from artists all around the world, such as the San Francisco based Jeremy P. Morgan, Jo Kori and Albedo Marz. There will also be artist talks each day and even intimate performances from artists like Cat Skellington in the front room!
 

 
DISCOVER THE FUTURE
 
Step into a mysterious world through a secret entrance hidden somewhere in Parkside and join Doris Dodo in a creepy immersive experience in which Doris and her team of ghostly characters allow you to experience your own funeral alongside other creepy activities. Will you be brave enough?
 
This is just a snapshot of what’s on offer, with 100’s of free acts alongside over 70 different ticketed shows. Take a walk around Ventnor during the Ventnor Fringe week and see what you discover!
