Coronavirus: council service information and advice

Information about changes to council services as a result of coronavirus

Unfortunately due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to cancel the Southsea Food Festival, the Bandstand events, the International Kite Festival, VJ day events and the Southsea car boot sales this summer.

The UK Government's COVID-19 recovery strategy clearly recognises that public events present a high risk to public health and therefore it will not be possible to hold large scale public gatherings at this stage and for many months ahead.

Thank you to all involved in these events and activities - we very much hope to bring them back again in 2021.
