Local traders exhibited on Castle Field on Sunday and lovers of all things vintage and quirky got to snap up some bargains. On the stage diverse acts entertained the crowds, including two burlesque shows, rock bands and even a 40s inspired trio – The Three Belles.

Groundlings Theatre Group took the crowd on a journey through the fashions of the past 2,000 years with tableaux of ancient Roman, Greek and Victorian scenes.

Organiser Lucy Whitmore said: ‘It’s our first Love Southsea Show and we’ve had a massive turn out.

‘It’s been brilliant – and there’s been some wonderful community spirit.‘
