Mayor of Ventnor, Steph Toogood, who is opening the event, said – ‘Ventnor Day showcases the best of our town, from our rich and diverse voluntary and community organisations to our artists, and crafters and some of our most popular musicians and food outlets. It’s a great day out for all ages in the picturesque setting of Ventnor Park and Putting Green – and a chance to raise funds for Ventnor Carnival. Thanks to our many volunteers that help to make the day run smoothly. A particular thanks to the Comic Jazz band for performing at our event after helping to put the town on the map with their amazing performance at the Queens Platinum Jubilee.’
