The city looks forward to Victorious Festival in August but there are other festivals on the horizon. Boathouse 4, a relatively new attraction in the Dockyard has a festival from 5th – 7th August. Meanwhile, we are delighted to announce Portsmouth’s first seafood festival, at The Camber Dock in Old Portsmouth on 3rd & 4th of September, brought to you by Portsmouth Fish Market, Southsea Lifestyle and our partners, a great opportunity to celebrate our city’s fishing community and its seafaring past.
To mark the occasion of the festival, we are launching a pop-up radio station, presenting local people, features and music, which we will be taking on tour around the city. There will be more information in our August issue and on both our own and Strong Island’s social media, but if you, your business/organisation would like to get involved, in either the radio, the seafood festival, or both, do get in touch via: firstname.lastname@example.org we’d love to hear from you.
Finally, we hope you like this month’s cover, featuring one of our city’s great landmarks, HMS Warrior 1860. The ship is badly in need of some serious restoration, (see p.47) We hope you will show the old lady how much you care by sending HMS Warrior your coloured-in artwork. Have some fun in process and perhaps win a prize – further details on the inside back cover.
