Plymouth's biennial outdoor spectacular, Music of the Night, is being held all this week at the Royal Citadel.

Music, song, dance, lasers, fireworks and gunfire will combine with the musicians of the Bands of the Royal Artillery and Her Majesty's Royal Marines and a cast of hundreds of talented local performers to raise money for local and military charities.

This year's event will be the tenth and final year, and will mark the 50th anniversary of the formation of the Commando Gunners. Organisers hope it will be the biggest and best yet.

It has also been announced that audiences will be treated to performances every night by Plymouth's very own chart-topping Military Wives Choir.

Many of the members of the Choir are wives and partners of soldiers serving in 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery, based at the Royal Citadel.

Since launching in 1992 to commemorate the re-dedication of the Royal Citadel after its refurbishment, Music of the Night has raised nearly £600,000 for charity.

The West Country Tonight will be live at the Royal Citadel this evening. Tune in from 6pm.
