As part of of the Ventnor Fringe, we’re involved in a whole host of upcoming events.
From storywalks and the book bus, to an Island Storytellers collective event and our first `Tis Tales performance, there are plenty of opportunities to come and hear some tales told the traditional way.
‘Tis Tales — Island Tales
Following several shows as “Three Island Storytellers”, Holly Medland, Tony “Monty” Hirst and Sue Bailey are coming to Ventnor Fringe for a first performance in their new guise of ‘Tis Tales.
Drawing on a wide range range of traditional stories, fabulous folk tales, magical myths, lost legends, and possibly even a few lies, the performance is sure to feature some stories you may recall as having heard somewhere before, once upon a time, and others that will surely be new to you.
So leave the box sets behind, unsubscribe from the podcasts, turn off the radio, forego the theatre, and instead come and enjoy a programme of tales told the traditional way.

Island Storytellers — Gri(m)m Tales After Dark
This evening of storytelling will include grim local stories, darkly humorous yarns and folk tales collected by the brothers Grimm. (Viewer discretion advised as some of these stories may be a bit dark for the very young or faint hearted. Your yarn spinners all belong to the Island Storytellers, an informal group who meet to share tales and keep alive and promote oral storytelling. They meet on a monthly basis with occasional extra events such as arranging visiting storytellers and running storytelling workshops.
You can bring your drinks to this venue !
