Scores of revellers packed into the Wedgewood Rooms in Southsea for the Big Blue Do concert ahead of tomorrow’s big day.

The annual event sees people from across the city dress in blue and take part in blue-themed events to raise cash for the Tom Prince Cancer Trust.

Gig-goers were treated to performances from acoustic guitarist Danny Wright, Days of Speed, Reactor1, The Phantom and Kojak’s Revenge.

The venue’s general manager Geoff Priestley said more than 200 tickets had been sold for the concert, and hopes the night will raise between £1,200 and £1,500 for the cause.

He said: ‘I like the fact Blue Day brings everyone together and gives people something to focus on rather than themselves.’

Tom’s dad Clinton said: ‘To have headline bands like Kojak’s Revenge and The Phantom playing is absolutely fantastic.

‘People worked during the day and were willing to put on this event – it’s really humbling.’
