The Fireworks and Fairy Lights event takes place in Palmerston Road from 4pm to 6pm on Wednesday, November 9.

The Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Councillor David Fuller, and Father Christmas will help switch on the lights at 5pm and kick off the festive season.
A fireworks finale follows at 6pm. The Love Southsea market will be in the precinct throughout the day for early Christmas shopping.
