Our official media partners, Strong Island have made this fantastic video featuring some of the best bits of this years festival. Check it out – you might even spot yourself in the crowd shots.
We would like to thank everyone who helped make Victorious Festival 2013 such a great success, and the people of Portsmouth and surrounding areas for showing both themselves and the rest of the country they’re capable of having a fun, large scale event safely and without incident.
The help provided by Portsmouth City Council, MDP Police, Vespasian security as well as all the local bands, stallholders, entertainers, companies and volunteers who pitched in, proves again that Portsmouth is a vibrant city full of energy, ideas and creative people.
Obviously we also thank the guys and girls at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard who allowed us to use their historic venue and their own large pool of personal talent in every area of the festival organisation. This, along with the Royal Navy itself assisted in providing all manner of help.
Having a stage set between Britain’s most modern warships and Nelson’s flagship is a setting that you simply cannot equal at any other festival – along with the free kid’s arena in the shadow of the new Mary Rose Museum and access to all the Dockyard attractions, the setting was perfect!
Almost 45,000 people visited the festival over the weekend, almost 5000 of these being children. We hope you and your family enjoyed the 120 bands, 110 stalls, beer festival , kids arena , Peppa pig, silent disco and of course all 6 amazing Dockyard attractions.Finally, we would like to thank our visitors for the thousands of individual pieces of feedback which has been overwhelmingly positive and full of great ideas for next year. We hope to implement many of these great ideas to make Victorious Festival 2014 even bigger and better than it was this year!
