A NEW sponsor has been announced for Victorious Festival.

The festival, which takes place in August, has announced that its Kids’ Arena will be sponsored by Canoe Lake Leisure.

The company, based in Southsea, provides tennis facilities and lessons and a team will be in the arena at the festival offering the chance for youngsters to try their hand at tennis alongside competitions and games.

Peppa Pig will make appearances and Portsmouth Historic Dockyard will bring a host of activities.

All the activities in the arena are free and tickets are £25 per day for adults and £6 for five to 15 year olds until July 3 (booking fee applies).
