ONE of Portsmouth’s most successful music events is getting sponsorship from a law firm.

Victorious Festival, which takes place at Castle Field in Southsea on August 27 and 28, is being sponsored by Verisona Law, a firm which works with businesses and private individuals.

The festival’s line-up features Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, DJ Mark Ronson, Will Young and The Manic Street Preachers.

James Ralls, who helps organise the festival, said: ‘It’s great to have Verisona Law on board. Having firmly established the event over the past two years, we took the decision to talk to local businesses about getting involved.’

Nick Oliver, director of Verisona Law, said: ‘We were delighted to be asked to support such a dynamic team that is providing superb entertainment for our community and attracting business and attention to Portsmouth.’
