Have your say

ONE of this year’s Portsmouth Festivities events has already sold out.

Carol Ann Duffy, the poet laureate, will give a talk, hold a question and answer session and book signing as well as read some of her acclaimed poems to a full house at the David Russell Theatre at the Portsmouth Grammar School on Friday, June 20.

Tickets went on sale last week.

It is one of the first of 90 events in the 2014 festivities, which run from June 20 to June 29.
