Inspired by the national Keep Britain Tidy campaign, the Great British Spring Clean, the festival will focus on cutting litter, ending unnecessary waste, improving public spaces and educating city residents on the importance of living sustainably.
A collaboration between Portsmouth City Council, Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Services and the NHS, HIVE aims to become the home of important social action within the city. Taking place 10am to 2pm, the event is open to everyone and will be great fun for families. Find out more here.
