Friday 16th March saw the launch of Portsmouth Festivities, Portsmouth’s flagship multi-disciplinary arts festival. Now in its 19th year, the programme continues with a fantastic mix of concerts, talks, theatre and outdoor events planned for 10 days from June 15-24.
The theme for this year’s festival is FREEDOM and what better way to explore this than trying to escape from their very own commissioned Escape Room which will hopefully be breaking a record as the world’s smallest escape room. You could also try a spot of backwards running with three times World champion Garret Doherty. There are many other events around the Freedom theme including the showing of Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom at No6 Cinema.
