RICK JACKSON: The patriotism inspired by HMS Queen Elizabeth is wonderful

The Kings Theatre opened its doors to the public on Saturday to give an exclusive look behind the scenes.

The theatre in Albert Road, Southsea, organised workshops for children including dressing up, puppetry and musical theatre. There were also presentations throughout the day which provided further insight into the theatre.

These included the history of the theatre, its day-to-day running, the Albert Road Traders' Association and information about volunteering at The Kings.

People were also able to have a look backstage and watch stage design demonstrations.
