THE creatives behind Ventnor Fringe Festival are celebrating ten years of bringing a variety of shows to the Isle of Wight.

A new documentary charts their success over the last decade.

This year's fringe features nearly 150 performances of more than 90 different shows, alongside many more free events, from July 23 to 28.

Some shows have already sold out.

Transforming the Island’s southernmost town with pop-up venues, the festival hosts nine main venues, alongside other smaller spaces including a 1930’s Parisian Book Bus, an arts trail spanning textiles to street art, and intimate gigs in shops and homes.

Two new venues for this year are Hygeia House, an old pub which will be transformed into an intimate theatre with accompanying gin bar, and The Magpie, a big top tent.

For music lovers Ventnor’s many churches will host concerts from folk singer Charlie Dore to G4 singer Mike Christie.

For new sounds Ventnor’s Harbour is turned into an exciting new music venue with rising hip-hop star Barney Artist, Chicago’s next big export, the psych rock Post Animal, and local favourites such as CHAMPS.
