HUNDREDS of people enjoyed awards and great performances last night as figures from the local arts and culture scene got together to celebrate another memorable year at the Guide Awards 2014.
This slideshow of pictures shows some of the scenes from the awards evening.
Nominees, local celebrities and The Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Councillor Steven Wylie, were joined by readers of The News at the Kings Theatre in Southsea for the annual event, sponsored by Portsmouth College.
There were performances from some of the area’s finest and freshest talent as well as the awarding of trophies in 14 categories, honouring the best in music, theatre, comedy, film, art, exhibitions and food and drink, as voted for by our readers and expert judges.
Don’t miss The Guide on Friday for more pictures and interviews with the winners.
