TO MARK the clocks going forward, Portsmouth City Council held a series of events to try and find The Lost Hour.

Organised by the council and the city library service, activities for all ages took place at the City Museum and Records Office, the Aspex Gallery at Gunwharf Quays, the New Theatre Royal and the D-Day Museum.

On Saturday guests were invited to visit new worlds in space-themed drama workshops, solve mysteries with Sherlock Holmes, and make a Planet Portsmouth Passport to collect inter-galactic stamps.

City council communications officer, Lloyd Evans, said: ‘To celebrate the lighter nights courtesy of daylight saving time, various venues across the city laid on some fantastic activities.’

These also included crazy golf at the city museum, where youngsters tried to score a hole-in-one – straight into different black holes.

Woodcroft Primary School Choir, from Waterlooville, performed in the museum grounds, while families enjoyed making sparkly space suits and Mars rovers in an arts and crafts session. The Groundlings Theatre became a jungle for a day, with a sky-painted ceiling and wildlife sounds.
