Motorists heading into the city of Portsmouth tonight should note traffic may be heavier than usual due to the Gunwharf Fireworks.
It may affect you if you are travelling into the city to see the opening night of 'Made in Dagenham' or tonight's performance of 'Playhouse Creatures', so you may need to anticipate a slightly longer journey time.
Gunwharf Quays say they are anticipating a high turnout at the fireworks event, which has been exceptionally well attended in previous years. It starts from 6:30pm but roads are likely to be affected either side of this time, particularly as the car parks near the centre begin to fill up.
Those attending the fireworks are advised to use the Park and Ride service, which has buses departing at exceptionally regular intervals this evening (as often as once every 5 minutes).
South Downe Musical Society open their production of 'Made In Dagenham' this evening, following months of rehearsals and preparation. The company present strong musical productions and this follows their runaway success 'Legally Blonde: The Musical' at the venue last year. Their production is staged at The Kings Theatre from 7:30pm. Tickets are available from the theatre box office.
Meanwhile, Adroit Theatre Company present their second night of 'Playhouse Creatures', following an exceptionally positive opening night with lots of strong acclaim from the audience in attendance. They open at 7:30pm at the Minghella Studio within the New Theatre Royal, Portsmouth.
Outside of Portsmouth city, the Southsea Shakespeare Actors continue their run of 'As You Like It' at the Hayling Island Station Theatre.
Let us know if you have any traffic problems this evening getting to the shows. We'll be keeping our Twitter feed updated as much as possible: @PortsTheatre.
