If you have lived in Southsea for more than a few years you’ll probably have noticed it’s growing popularity. More shops, restaurants, festivals and attractions – there’s an air of confidence and sophistication about the place.
You may even have heard of comparisons to Brighton and of creatives in London drawn to our seaside and comparatively affordable house prices. Whether this is an exciting vision or one that fills you with horror, do read John Worsey’s article discussing the ‘Southsea brand’ (p.35) Talking of brands, Southsea Lifestyle is delighted to announce that we have joined forces with the Strong Island Co. brand, the much respected media hub who have made a major contribution to our community and the many improvements the city has seen. You can read more on p.4.
Graffiti art can also add to a city’s culture and colour and Fark-FK has done an enormous amount to support this sometimes underrated and misunderstood art form. You can also win Fark-FK’s artwork, painted specially for our front cover, (see pp27-29).
