And this year is no different, as the troupe of troubadors will be performing their takes on pop, rock and soul classics from across the decades six times on the Saturday and Sunday.

The group began life in 2010 as a bunch of Portsmouth-based friends from the local music scene who started playing together to raise money for a local lad with cerebral palsy.

They have since gone on to raise thousands of pounds for a variety of causes.
