A BLUES brother, Wizard of Oz characters, animals and superheroes took over a Southampton bar to celebrate the launch of PSP Southampton Boat Show.

Event sponsors PSP Logistics held the annual fancy dress event at Orange Rooms in Vernon Walk to mark the start of the 45th boat show and mark the firm’s 15th birthday.

The theme of the event was “On Board The Ark” and the front door of the venue was transformed into an ark as guests arrived dressed up as famous pairs.

The firm invited exhibitors at this year’s event and customers to enjoy the evening.

Guests enjoyed an evening of music, including a performance from The Deloreons.
