CLUB SCENE with Char Edmonds

Have your say

This weekend is yet another busy one for Portsmouth with loads of good events going on in all shapes and sizes.

Tomorrow you’re spoilt for choice, with some excellent family fun for Sunday.

Starting tomorrow from 7pm until 1.30am, The Kindergarten Sessions are back at Flamingos Bar on Albert Road.

DJs Nicky K and Moses Matt will be taking you on a vinyl-only musical journey, that takes you back to the club days of a memorable night that used to take Portsmouth by storm. As a special treat there is free entry all night, with excellent drinks offers such as £2.50 drinks until 10pm and £1 double-up on spirits.

Also tomorrow, in the unique setting of South Coast Boxing & Fitness on Goldsmith Avenue in Fratton, Lush FM presents Knockout Drum and Bass. From 9pm until 3am Lush FM will fill the ring with 14 of their regular DJs, representing various drum and bass crews from Portsmouth, going head-to-head for a night of carnage. Round One will include back-to-back sets from DJs such as Sparxy and Zork, Mota and Baker, and Nooch and Ozzy.

Tickets are £5 available from

Not forgetting that this week at Boutique at The Astoria, there is the Common People takeover, as The Astoria and Bestival proudly present Rob Da Bank and Friends from 10pm until 2am, who will be coming at you big and loud for a night to remember. They are joined by resident DJ Owen Baxter who will continue to bring you the best party vibes.

Downstairs will feature the A&E Deejays bringing you the best in house, tech and bass. Entry will be £5 on the door all night.

On Sunday it’s my favourite family party again, as Ickle Bambino Baby Raves plant their seeds of fun at The Square Tower in Old Portsmouth. This month brings you the melodic sounds of DJs Chip Jacks from midday until 2pm, and Jamie Wilkinson from 2.15pm until 4.15pm.

Complete with arts and crafts, fancy dress photo booth, face painting and a colourful array of glow sticks, watch your little one come alive. Tickets are £5 for adults and £4 children aged one to seven available online from
