Festival or Organisation description:
Now in its 18th year, the Portsmouth Festivities has developed a reputation for providing high quality events with professional artists in the city’s unique venues. Both regionally and nationally, our reach continues to grow.
For 10 days at the end of the June, we capture imaginations, celebrate diversity and explore Portsmouth’s amazing heritage. This includes music, literature, dance, debate, theatre, and visual arts. The Festival allows for exploring the past, making the most of our present and reimagining our future. What's more, it offers everyone the chance to get involved, with all kinds of fun-filled activities for the whole family.
Running from Friday 16 to Sunday 25 June, Portsmouth Festivities 2017 will feature our best programme so far, with brand new commissions, the very best of local talent and performances from internationally recognised artists.
