2004 saw our Borough celebrating 800 years of 'official recognition'.
In 1204 the Bishop of Winchester, Bishop Godfrey de Lucy, granted to Winchester Cathedral "all profits which may reasonably be derived form the Vill [town] newly built upon the Harbour in the Manor of Alwarestoke", and in so doing made the first formal acknowledgement of Gosport's existence.

A whole number of events are being planned throughout 2017 so that the people of Gosport can have fun and be proud of their town, its history, and their place in it. So you don't miss any that you might like to participate in, we shall be adding them to our calendar of events. As events are developed throughout the year they will be listed on www.gosport.gov.uk.

Gosport Festival 2004

This years Gosport Festival at the Falklands Gardens site at the ferry had good local support over the two days it was held. Headliners The Rubettes and George McRae gave a good account of themselves and entertained the crowds who came to enjoy the sun and sounds of the Gosport Festival.

Local groups and acts were on show during both days and the weather helped to boost numbers of people who did not stay in to watch the football.

The Borough of Gosport sits on a peninsular facing the City of Portsmouth on one side and the Solent looking out to the Isle of Wight on the other, with Fareham forming it's landward border.. Formed by the amalgamation of the villages of Alverstoke, Brockhurst, Forton, Elson, Lee on the Solent, Bridgemary and Rowner, it has evolved from a bustling Naval armaments dormitory to a thriving yachting and boating town, for ever in touch with it's nautical traditions from it's early history to the 21st century
