2019 marks 100 years since Nancy Astor took her seat as MP for our fellow port city of Plymouth. Join us for a panel-based discussion on more recent female experiences of the political world, both as participants and as commentators.
After the discussion and Q&A there will be an opportunity to meet and discuss the event with the panellists.
2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the Portsmouth Festivities. It has been wonderful to look back on the fantastic events presented by the festival over the last twenty years, and to celebrate, our theme this year is ‘Twenty’. We’re paying homage to the festival’s extraordinary history with a programme that explores Portsmouth’s past and looks to its future, with new faces at the festival including The Cardinall’s Musick, award-winning restaurant critic Jay Rayner, and Estonian folk sensation Mari Kalkun. We’re also welcoming back performers who have gone on to achieve acclaim in the years since, such as cellist Guy Johnston and organist James Davy, as well as the internationally renowned chamber choir Tenebrae. All this and a host of workshops, exhibitions, talks, and shows continue to raise Portsmouth’s reputation as a centre for the creative and cultural arts. Wherever you are in twenty years’ time, you can be sure you won’t have forgotten this year’s Portsmouth Festivities.
