Bedknobs and broomsticks will be shown on the big screen in Southsea Common

Together with the witch and the aid of a magic bed, the children travel to an undersea kingdom, stop a Nazi invasion and have other adventures.

Bedknobs and Broomsticks mixes live action and animation for a bewitchingly good time.

The film will be shown on the big screen which is being put on Southsea Common for the upcoming D-Day anniversary events this week.

It will begin at 7pm on Friday night – so make sure you get down early to claim a good spot.

A weather warning for rain has been issued for tomorrow but the council have said the current forecast does not predict ‘any weather severe enough for us to consider cancellation’.

The screening of Bedknobs and Broomsticks follows a concert featuring Military Concert band, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and a specially formed young person’s choir performing a composition by James Olsen, inspired by reminiscences of D-Day veterans.
