Ventnor Fringe 2023: Unwanted Objects

Old teddy bears, abandoned chess sets and ships-in-bottles. Every item in this mysterious secondhand shop has a tale worth telling and a history worth sharing.

Unwanted Objects is a new storytelling theatre show from acclaimed duo David Head and Matt Glover, touring after its successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2022.

Combining bittersweet short stories with folk-inspired musical melancholia, it’s an evening of wit, warmth and whimsy.

So come and enjoy this magical exploration of sentimentality, our possessions and the meaning we attach to them.
