The Portland Ballroom is the largest indoor area onsite at Strawberry Fair. You can chill in the shade to great music from the Stage whilst enjoying fine drinks from the excellent bar.
This is the fifth year the Marquee has been called the Portland Ballroom, due to the great community support provided by the Portland Arms, who will once again provide the bar in the marquee. The Portland Ballroom stage will again be presented by GIGS OUT, who have been presenting, promoting and publicising great Events in East Anglia for ten years now.
In line with the Fair's overall theme ‘Heroes', this year we will be presenting ‘Stage Heroes' at THE PORTLAND BALLROOM. This year’s line up will as always feature an eclectic line-up of up and coming artists, the cream of local artists and a surprise or two (there are one or two well-known names in the line-up again this year!).
We will be decorating the marquee in line with the theme and everyone is encouraged to come along dressed up :) We will also be inviting the public to be Stage Heroes (for just one day) in our Air Guitar Hero Contest! If you're a bit too shy for that, you can have your photo taken as a Stage HERO at our Photo Opportunity Board :)
The Music runs all day from Midday until 10.30pm and we have 15 Acts for you with over 60 Stage Heroes to entertain you (Check the programme and our Stage posters for specific times).
