Watch University Of Portsmouth Alumna, Lauren Steadman In Strictly Come Dancing On The Big Screen

The Big Screen Portsmouth — starting this weekend — will screen the BBC One Saturday Night entertainment programme Strictly Come Dancing, supporting University of Portsmouth Alumna, Lauren Steadman.

The University Sports Scholar and World Champion Paratriathlete will dance the waltz with her partner AJ Pritchard on the BBC One show from 6.15pm on Saturday night.

Students and staff have wished University alumna Lauren Steadman the best of luck ahead of her first performance. The video, which can be seen below, features the Vice-Chancellor, Graham Galbraith, Head of Sport and Recreation, Paul Tilley, and students from the Athletic Union. 

Lauren, who completed a Master’s degree in Business and Management at the University, has been a Sports Scholar at the University for the past five years. She recently regained her world title, to add to her six European titles and silver medal at the Rio 2016 Paralympics. The University continues to support Lauren today as part of her quest to win gold at Tokyo 2020.

Don't Miss "Last Night Of The Proms" This Saturday On The Big Screen

On Saturday, 8 September, the Big Screen will be broadcasting the BBC Two coverage of the Last Night of the Proms, live for the Royal Albert Hall in London from 7:15 PM.

Sir Andrew Davis, the much-loved former Chief Conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra and a veteran steersman of the Last Night, returns to direct the greatest annual party in classical music. The popular nautical theme of traditional favourites by Henry Wood and Thomas Arne is extended in Stanford’s Songs of the Sea, featuring star Canadian baritone Gerald Finley. 

Another British choral classic, Blest Pair of Sirens – honouring the ‘harmonious sisters, Voice and Verse’ – joins Jerusalem in the centenary year of Hubert Parry’s death. 

There’s a dash of Broadway in the touching ‘Soliloquy’ from Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel, in which the wife-battering Billy finds new eloquence while vowing to change his ways, and a more mischievous streak in Milhaud’s delightful suite Scaramouche. 

Roxanna Panufnik’s new commission rounds off a series of over 40 world, UK or London premieres this season, continuing the forward-looking vision of Proms founder-conductor Henry Wood.

The Big Screen will screen the full programme which will commence from 7:15 PM and finish at 9:00 PM. We ask of those wishing to attend, to bring their own chairs or sit upon the Guildhall steps.
