Bruce Burr-Lennon, 57, was there on Sunday with his daughter Ellie, 21.

They had wandered from Bruce’s home near Marmion Road to take a look at the festival – and enjoy some Sicilian sausage.

Bruce said: ‘It was quite pleasant, we’ve been down there most years for the past few years.

‘There was quite a nice bit of variety, but I have to admit we didn’t eat a huge amount but we did have some Sicilian food.

‘It’s great, I live off Marmion Road and they have an awful lot of things down there.

‘The more they have in Southsea the better.’
