17th - 19th November 2022



Artist: Mrs Blossom Makes (Joanna Blossom)

Location: Victoria Park, Portsmouth

All three days, 5pm-9pm

Do you remember your childhood, scouring the woods for fairies & elves or searching for them at the bottom of the garden?

Well, if you go down to the Park today… you’ll witness one hundred
enchanting fairy and elf doors.

Beautifully created during a series of magical workshops with Mrs
Blossom Makes and her team, the delightful doors were individually
handmade by children across Portsmouth in schools and groups, as well
as on the children’s ward at Queen Alexandra Hospital.

Thoughtfully displayed in a captivating installation to awaken your
belief, and take you back to the days searching for fairies and elves
at the bottom of the garden, this corner of Victoria Park will bring a
smile to your face and a twinkle to your eye.

You’ll be guaranteed a fairy good time so stop by to take a s-elfie.
No one is too old for magic, so leave a little sparkle wherever you
