The end of January saw Icebreaker come back as the South Coast’s biggest unsigned band festival. Offering a huge array of talent, from all across the UK, and packing it into a small geographic area means you don’t have far to walk to see great bands over the 2 days. Covering just two streets in Southsea and now in its 7th year, I went along to support local musicians as well as unsigned bands from near and far. At £12 a ticket, the value is fantastic for such talented musicians – you’d normally pay that just to see one act on their own!
For 3 years we have been attending Victorious as a family. Always attending on the Saturday as it offers a great day out for the children as well as brilliant acts on the Common Stage! Plus, a big bonus is that you can buy day tickets, yay!
Conceived in 2013, brewing since 2014 in the Guildhall Brewhouse & Kitchen before opening their own Dino extravaganza Brewery in Fratton in 2015 – Staggeringly Good has gone from strength [ … ]
Having Victorious fever and thinking about what musicians are playing this wknd it got me thinking about Tom Bryan who kind of blew me away at the Southsea Folk Awards. He came along and played a half-hour set during the break. Out of all the people that were there watching him, nearly half of the crowd came to me after to ask who he was and how incredible he was to watch!
Heading to Victorious this Bank Holiday weekend? Don’t forget to explore Market Way and check out some wonderful local businesses before heading to the Common Stage to party the night away! This year you’ll find Charlotte Cornelius Jewellery tucked away amongst the many stores; stand 19.
Let’s face it if you’re larging it up at a festival – you’re more than likely going to be pretty haggard the next day – unless you’re sensible & don’t drink, gasp! As much as I would like to pretend I am an angelic little being, I love a ‘few drinks’ every now & then as much as the next person.
So, without sounding like your Mum, here are my top tips on going to a festival & still feeling fabulous… or at least preserving a shred of your health & wellbeing!
With Victorious nearly upon us, I’ve been looking into the local creatives and businesses you can take a visit to on Market Way. Today I wanted to shine a light on the fabulous Megan Elizabeth Designs owned by … well … Megan!
With over 100 stalls covering every cuisine imaginable and the added bonus of the Wedgewood Rooms providing a stage with wonderful live music over the whole weekend, Southsea Food Festival had a true festival vibe this year!
What a weekend planned for the 14th and 15th July with the Southsea Food Festival that has been going now for 12 years and has just grown each year to be such a great event with a buzzing atmosphere. Offering a real celebration of food for the whole 2 days, it is a chance to see the local food businesses we have step outside of their shops and produce some really mouthwatering festival food! With over 60 stalls and lots planned for both days, if you love food and a touch of gin you know it is somewhere you need to head down to.
