Those to have taken to the stage already include the Southsea Alternative Choir, which performed on the headline stage.

Families and visitors have also been enjoying the sights inside the show’s Big Top Performance Arena.

So far there have been cheerleading displays from the Portsmouth Warriors as well as high-kicking martial arts action from the Taekwondo Academy and dynamic dancing from hip-hop troupe The Movement Initiative.

But there is plenty more action still to come.

Speaking of his pride for Portsmouth, the 23-year-old said: ‘It’s my hometown and I think it’s the first show we’ve done in Portsmouth, so it’s quite a big one and it’s going to feel special to me.

‘This is our first show now for five months, so it’s exciting in terms of getting back on the road and setting up again.

‘But the fact it’s in Portsmouth makes it that extra bit special.

Following the three-piece on the Main Stage will be The Shires, from 7.15pm to 8pm.

Then, at 8.30pm British pop-rock group Scouting For Girls is hoping to thrill the crowds with its performance before today’s event is closed by Australian pop legend Peter Andre.

Andre will take to the stage to perform the last show of the day, from 9.45pm until 10.45.

The event will close shortly after at 11pm before re-opening tomorrow morning from 11am.
