Plymouth's 'Music of the Night' event begins tonight at the Royal Citadel. It runs until Friday and aims to raise more than £600,000 for local and military charities.
The event started in 1992 to commemorate the re-dedication of the Royal Citadel after its refurbishment.
Among the cast are professional musicians from the Royal Artillery and Her Majesty's Royal Marines.
