PORTSMOUTH’S first shopping festival was set to kick off today.

The two-week event, organised by Portsmouth City Council, is aimed at celebrating the city’s local shops, eateries and venues.

Highlights include live entertainment, street markets, and a walking trail inspired by Sherlock Holmes, who was created in Portsmouth by author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
