The Big Screen Portsmouth was used to display video messages and images to promote the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity as well as a track listing of the music that was to be performed.

Guildhall Square was closed off to the public to allow for the marching band space to perform. Hundreds were in attendance to watch the event.

The sun beamed off the musical instruments adding a special touch to the spectacular show.

The Big Screen Portsmouth loves to support events such as these. If you have an event that's due to take place in Portsmouth's Guildhall Square.
