ORGANISERS have said this year’s Portsmouth Schools Music Festival will be their biggest ever.

Young people launched the popular event – which will see choirs, orchestras, bands and dancers take to the stage – on the steps of Portsmouth Guildhall.

Almost 2,000 young people aged between five and 19 are set to take part in four nights of music and dance, based either on songs from films or the four elements.

Eight choirs from secondary, junior and infant schools across the city will give performances which start tomorrow evening at 6.30pm and continue at the same time until Friday. Every day from Wednesday there will be coverage and photos of the event in The News to help you follow the festival.

Chairwoman of the festival Becky Hill said the event – which is now in its fourth year – was going from strength to strength.

‘When we started we only did two nights, and now we’re up to four,’ she said. ‘I’m sure this year will be the biggest and best ever.’

Tickets are available after 5pm all week inside the Guildhall foyer, and cost £4, £5 and £6.
