Ventnor Fringe team supplements Sundays

The team behind Ventnor Fringe has created The Sunday School.

SUNDAYS on the Isle of Wight are to get the Ventnor Fringe treatment thanks to a new event.

The team behind the festival has created Sunday School, bringing together some favourite Sunday traditions — from the Sunday paper, to a walk in the country and lunch.

Launching this Sunday and using venues including the town’s library, youth centre and arts club, Sunday School will feature talks from philosophers, artists, scientists and entrepreneurs from across the UK.

Director Jack Whitewood said: "This is an experiment in creating a Sunday experience that combines your weekend newspaper, country walk and roast diner all in one.

"The first event will include analysis of the ongoing situation in Ukraine by Professor Marc Berenson, of King’s College’s Russia Institute, an introduction to Greek philosophy by the writer Mark Vernon, a guided walk of St Boniface Down by Robin Lang, Isle of Wight National Trust head warden and workshops in everything from letter writing to singing, yoga to puppetry with more being announced every day.

"Expect lots of sofas, good coffee, scrabble, Sunday lunch, dancing, poetry, records and perhaps the perfect Sunday. Best to arrive early to get the comfiest sofa."

Tickets are available from the venues or via the website
