FROM shadow puppets to a bus transformed into a bookshop, from award-winning folk music to outdoor cinema screenings - Ventnor Fringe organisers have revealed some of the entertainment on offer when the festival returns next month.
Held at venues across the town, between August 8 and August 13, the festival coincides with the Ventnor International Festival, a new event produced by the same team, which will include performances from acts including Childhood, The Parrots, Cosmo Pyke, Girl Ray and CHAMPS.
Festival director Jack Whitewood said: "From yoga in the park each morning to DJ's on the harbour at sunset, the Ventnor Fringe is an opportunity to completely re-imagine how we use our urban spaces, and aims to make one of our Island towns come alive like never before. Get down to the south coast and re-discover Ventnor, it's becoming a really special place."
