A FREE workshop aims to give families an insight into Gunwharf Quays’ naval history.
The Depth Charge daily workshops are running until Sunday, when there will be a finale performance with aerial artist Austin Spangler.
Activities run from midday until 4pm and include lantern making, puppets, a mystery trail and a treasure hunt during which youngsters can follow clues to unlock a prize.
A grand lantern procession will mark the finale on Sunday, which starts at the tunnel entrance to Gunwharf Quays at 4pm.
Peter Emery, Gunwharf Quays centre director, said: ‘Depth Charge is set to be both a fun and educational event which the whole family can enjoy, connecting local people to their heritage.
‘We were delighted at receiving a grant from Arts Council England which made this event possible. Gunwharf Quays already provides a wide choice of leisure and entertainment services in the Portsmouth area and Depth Charge is yet another reason to pay a visit to the centre.’
