Chairs Report

Home truths, Visitors all agree after seeing other areas across the country – Albert Road IS ON TOP it has one of the highest occupancy rates in the UK. There is nowhere quite like it. It is packet with INDEPENDENT TRADERS reflecting all walks of life, creativity and wellbeing, LOVE IT LIVE IT SHOP IT.

Award winning Albert Road is always seeking new and interesting traders to develop their businesses,  thus adding to the creative instinct we love to be involved with.

Albert Road is one of the most desirable roads to own a business. Currently there are bidding wars going on to own a business here. In short Albert Road must be doing something right. Through the most difficult times we have survived an endless series of recession, boosted by INDEPENTENTS who are set on creating an ALTERNATIVE SHOPPING AREA for the community and creative people alike. Many businesses have decorated their premises to suit their taste, visitor like this. Shop here and you can find TV and Theatre celebrities, listen to great new musical talent at the Wedgewood Rooms and shop till you drop, stopping for a bite to eat and drink if you so wish at the many bars and café’s located throughout the mile long road.

Yearly we hold a number of festivals and events for the community in collaboration with The Kings Theatre and Portsmouth City Council Town Centre Management  team.

As you have heard there is nowhere quite like ALBERT ROAD – INDEPENDENT TRADERS always at their best and creative.  LOVE IT, LIVE IT, SHOP IT.
