The event was held to boost trade and celebrate the road’s community spirit.

Trees and shop windows were decorated with flowers while a number of exhibitions and performances took place along the street.

Organiser Hannah Kerley, 21, of Cottage Grove, Southsea, said: ‘It went really well.

‘It was a bit cold and windy but we made the most of it and had a really good time.

‘I was running around like a headless chicken trying to keep everyone organised most of the time but I had fun. The idea was to get people using Albert Road and using the shops that are down there.

‘It’s a great little road and people don’t use it enough.’

Students from the University of Portsmouth took part in a fashion showcase at Garbos hairdressers and Charmaine Florist held a flower-arranging master class.
