THE Southsea Show got off to a brilliant start with hundreds of families enjoying the fun of the showground.
The event takes place until tomorrow on Southsea Common with something for everyone.
Steve Pitt is the chairman of the organising committee from the Portsmouth Cultural Trust, which runs the event. He said: ‘It’s been really good. It’s the first year we’ve brought it back on a Friday and we had lots of people through the gates, particularly the younger children enjoying the art activities and costume making.
‘For me, the highlight of the day was walking into a tent at 11am and seeing about 14 children all joining in a music workshop. Not a single one was over four.’
Today there will be film screenings, children’s entertainment, music workshops, stiltwalkers, a petting farm, a vintage fair and music from Kojak’s Revenge.
