Event Highlights in April
With April this year comes Easter, giving many people a much-needed break. Don't let boredom set in, though, but head out for one of the many great events going on throughout Portsmouth this month.
There are shows aplenty for kids and adults at the city's theatres this month. First up is the Groundlings' ever-popular Tapas Theatre Festival, which features a number of micro-performances to entertain visitors on a walk through the wonderful Georgian building.
Portsmouth is blessed with a number of regular, great quality markets. Whether you want some locally farmed produce, a quirky one-off item or a grand art piece, you have lots to choose from throughout the city - and beyond.
Alternately, why not drop into the Hotwalls for its monthly Open Studios event, where you can chat with the local artists and browse their work.
Don't forget the Emsworth Farmers' Market as well. Comic Relief's official 'Red Nose Town' will host its monthly market on April 15.
Rolling in the aisles
A host of comedy superstars will be heading to Portsmouth this month. Master of the punchy one-liners Jimmy Carr is performing a greatest hits set at Portsmouth Guildhall, so expect some quick quips and curt crackers.
Elsewhere, Rich Hall hosts a Hoedown at the Wedgewood Rooms, Chris Ramsey recounts one of his more embarassing experiences at the Guildhall and Reginald D Hunter tells it like it is at the New Theatre Royal.
If all that weren't enough there's also the chance to see rising star and 'I'm a Celebrity...' runner up Joel Dommett in the intimate surrounds of the New Theatre Royal's Minghella Studio.
