Romsey will come alive to the sounds of music and celebration tonight and tomorrow with the annual Beggars Fair.

The free event starts at 8pm this evening with live music in various pubs across the town.

And tomorrow there will be lots of street entertainment including morris dancing, magicians, puppet theatre and Punch and Judy shows.

This year there will be a big stage in the Cornmarket, which will showcase bands such as Broadband from the Test Valley.

There will also be acts in Romsey War Memorial Park and Church Place.

During the Beggars Fair, the eastern end of the Market Place and The Hundred up to its junction with Latimer Street will be closed to traffic.
