TO CELEBRATE the return of the Southsea Show, Palmerston Road will be transformed by a roadshow this weekend.

The event is returning this summer and to mark its reappearance, organisers are inviting the public to enjoy live music and food.

Tomorrow, the Southsea Show Roadshow will be hitting Palmerston Road to supply entertainment throughout the day.

Music will range from Chris Ricketts, who is known for his sea shanties and folk music combinations to the Mayville High School Band.

Louise Whitmore, one of the organisers for the show, said: ‘This is to celebrate this summer’s return of the Southsea Show.

‘We’re having live music with Marley Blandford, Becky Jerams and The Visitors.

‘And, straight from the studios of Sky One’s Got To Dance, our very own Most Wanted will be performing their latest moves.’

As well as the dancers and the musicians, there will also be a display of piloxing – a combination of boxing and pilates.

Visitors will be able to take advantage of the free taster sessions being held by Healthhubhants from 1pm.

Louise added: ‘We’ve also got a bar and food which is being supplied by our own Southsea Kitchen, bringing along the famous Love Southsea Burger.

‘To top all this off, we have got our largest market to date packed to the brim with local traders selling lovely goods and wares.

‘We are hoping to see loads of people turn up.’

Southsea Show starts on August 3 and will have a range of family activities running all weekend.

Held on Southsea Common, there will be gardening demonstrations and competitions, stalls, a carousel and bumper cars, a petting zoo and sport activities.

Other highlights will include children’s storytelling, a dog show, a cider bus and a milkshake wagon as well as a market marquee and giant tea tent.
