Spring Music Breaks Around Portsmouth18th March 2015
Portsmouth – one of Britain’s most famous and historic ports. It is home to many of our restored old warships, such as HMS Warrior, and Nelson’s HMS Victory. Did you also know, however, that Portsmouth is also at the centre of one of the largest urban areas in the UK, and thus is also home to a bustling and thriving music scene. If you’re coming to join us at Mill Rythe this spring, then you should know about all the great ways to enjoy local music.
First and foremost, there are the fantastic music breaks that are available at Mill Rythe Holiday Village itself. On March 30th and April 27th, you can join us for “The Best of Movies and Musicals” adult-only break. These 4-night breaks (2 nights also available) feature toe-tapping performances from performers such as Jess Conrad, Shane Hampsheir singing James Bond, and our in-house team doing their renowned “Greatest Musicals of All Time” show. The break includes a special half-price deal on selected house drinks from 6.00pm to midnight.
If you’re staying with us in May, or any other month for that matter, and you fancy heading into Portsmouth, there are always great shows going on. Two websites worth paying attention to for music in Portsmouth are the Portsmouth Music Scene Facebook page, and Song Kick. A mixture of talented local artists and musicians from further afield is always on stage performing a wide range of musical genres to suit many tastes. For example, punk-rock fans will certainly enjoy the two-man band “Slaves,” playing at the Wedgewood Rooms (capacity 500) on May 5th. People who are fans of music a bit more folksy, bluesy or generally a little slower paced could perhaps get tickets to Scott Matthews on May 17th, also in the Wedgewood Rooms. Take a look through the links above to see what great music is on offer around Portsmouth and Southsea this year.
Portsmouth, Hayling Island and surrounding Hampshire combine beautiful coastal scenery, fascinating heritage, and the dulcet tones of a rainbow of musical genres. Book your next break with us now, and don’t miss out on the best deals in Hampshire this spring.
