THERE was plenty of laughter and enjoyment as a variety show hit all the right notes.

Portsmouth Does Variety took place at the King’s Theatre, in Albert Road, Southsea, and was organised by brothers Sam and James Westerby.

The pair, of Cobden Street, Gosport, lined up a host of stars to raise money for the theatre, Rowans Hospice and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Performances on the night came from ventriloquist Damon Scott, who was runner-up in Britain’s Got Talent, Norman Wisdom impersonator Glenn Ford and Helena Blackman, a runner-up on BBC1’s How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?.

Sam, 32, said: ‘The night went really well and everyone had lots of fun.

‘There was loads of laughter and there were lots of rounds of applause.

‘We sold more than 100 tickets and we’re still adding up how much money has been collected.’

The show started at 6.30pm and ran until 9pm.

Afterwards audience members got the chance to have a half-hour question-and-answer session with some of the performers.
