The Portsmouth Music Scene
The Youth Clubs

It's often said the the Northern clubs were where national and international entertainers learned their craft,
similarly, the local youth clubs, and especcially those in the Portsmouth area, are where young musicians and groups took their first steps into the world of music,
often giving a free gig on a Saturady in exchange for a room to practice during the week. We salute the Youth Clubs.
