Gwenda Dearsley is the organiser, and said: ‘It went well. We have some excellent adjudication and everything is going as planned.

‘I was particularly pleased with the junior vocal section. It was simply a delight to watch.

‘I think things like this can give the youngsters a good confidence boost.’

Portsmouth Music Festival has been running since 1917, with a brief gap during the Second World War. It covers all ages from six to over-80s.

The choral and brass bands sections take place this weekend.
