Portsmouth is a city of festivals, with a year-round programme for every taste including music, literature, food, kites and loads more. Victorious Festival is one of the South Coast's best family music festivals with amazing headliners, whilst Portsmouth Bookfest brings national and international authors to the city each year to celebrate its strong literary heritage. The annual kite festival, meanwhile, attracts visitors not just from around Hampshire but the whole world - it being a firm favourite among Asian visitors. There's more to the event than just kites, though, with a great many stalls creating an entire marketplace on the Common.
Sports in the City
Portsmouth boasts loads of outdoor, green areas, fantastic sports facilities, brilliant watersports and much more - making it a sports lover's paradise. Why not catch a game of football at Fratton Park, home to Portsmouth F.C., or take to the streets in the UK's premier 10-mile event, the Great South Run? If you don't much fancy the crowds there are plenty of smaller sporting events in Portsmouth, from year-round 5k runs to full marathons and triathlons.
