AN open day is being held this weekend for visitors wanting to explore Portsmouth’s new Hot Walls Studios.

All 13 studios in Old Portsmouth’s historic barracks will be open for people to look around.

It will be a chance for artists to show off their work to the public – and for Portsmouth City Council to celebrate the new cultural venture, paid for by the coastal communities fund, Partnership for Urban South Hampshire and the local authority.

The event at the Hot Walls takes place between 11am and 4pm on Sunday.
