Ticket to Ryde

Bethan John

Situated along the seafront just a stone’s throw from Ryde’s golden sand beaches, this free-to-attend event has become a Bank Holiday highlight! It provides a rich mix of bank holiday entertainment for both Island residents as well as an attraction for visitors to the Island’s shores.

Over the Late May Bank Holiday weekend, feel-good live music will be provided by The Redcatz Rock’n’Roll Trio, Momentary High, The Signal Men, It’s Not a Phase Mom!, Emellia, Divalicious, Charlene Duncan, Greg Barnes, The Sirens, Amy & Ellen, Steve Love’s Island Songs and more.

Ticket to Ryde is staged for the community to support Island charities and traders. This year our Charity of the Year is the Motor Neurone Disease Association Isle of Wight (MNDA). 

There will be a real ale bar courtesy of Island Ales, hot food freshly cooked by Island caterers including mouth-watering loaded fries, delicious burgers, cured and smoked sausages, meats, and cheeses and Mexican cuisine, all made using locally sourced ingredients. There will also be delicious locally-produced shortbread and cheesecakes plus ice creams, candy floss and sweet nachos. Not forgetting teas, coffees, hot chocolates, fresh churros and doughnuts, all served with a smile!

You can also browse a range of traditional market stalls. Why not pose for a hand-drawn caricature, have your tarot cards read or indulge in a beautifully sculpted henna tattoo? A range of children’s activities, including hair braiding and face painting will keep the little ones happy whilst the adults relax and enjoy the music.
