Ticket to Ryde – Late May Bank Holiday

May 25 @ 10:00 am - May 26 @ 8:00 pm

Ticket to Ryde

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.

Our annual community event Ticket To Ryde has been running for 10 years and is so popular with the Island community that working with our friends at Ryde Town Council, we’re delighted to say in 2024 it will be returning over the Late May (Spring) Bank Holiday weekend and August Bank Holiday weekend! ☀️

A superb platform for local musicians to showcase their talent

An original 1979 American Airstream stage originating from Santa Fe Springs in California provides the centre-piece to the Bank Holiday festivities. Rising up on hydraulics, this shiny silver-bullet stage supplied by our sister company, Retro Staycations, is a spectacle in its own right! Established bands and fresh new upcoming local talent will be performing live throughout the weekend.

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, Diva-Licious, Charlene Duncan, Greg Barnes, The Sirens, Amy Jolliffe, Steve Love’s Island Songs and more.

Charity fundraising & awareness building

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). Volunteers will have a presence at each event and as well as fundraising, are keen to advise how their various support schemes can help enhance the lives of those living with Motor Neurone Disease here on the Island, along with the many carers, families and wider networks of people who are touched by this condition.

Hand-picked Island stalls & delicious freshly-cooked food

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.


Organised by Jack Up Events in conjunction with Ryde Town Council to enable residents to engage with culture at no cost on their doorstep, Ticket to Ryde is a firm favourite in the Island’s calendar.

With a lovely atmosphere and laid-back family-friendly vibe, it’s the perfect way to enjoy a lazy bank holiday weekend!
