To conclude our Celebration of Music and Heritage, come and enjoy an afternoon of music, strawberry tea, and (hopefully) sun. The church tower will also be open (according to T&Cs, please see below) for the public to climb, and see a stunning view of Portsmouth’s landscape.

Strawberry Tea will be served from 2pm.

If you would like to attend, tickets cost £4, and are available in church or by booking with either 02392 822 990 or officeassistant@portseaparish.co.uk. Special thanks to Rodda’s Clotted Cream & Tiptree on behalf of the Cream Tea Society for donating the jam & clotted cream.
