Marvel, Music And Moana Boosts Morale At RAF Odiham

Film favourites join the crowd at RAF Odiham for their annual Friends and Families day.

Spiderman, Moana and music from The Altitudes entertained the crowd at RAF Odiham for their annual Friends and Families day thanks to Forces Live Events (CSE).

The fun packed day was an opportunity for the base to say thank you to loved ones and the wider community for their continued support.

This year, which was a special event to celebrate 100 years of the Royal Air Force, CSE provided superhero Spiderman and Disney princess Moana to meet the children and take photos, as well as a circus skills workshop where the whole family could learn to diabolo, tightrope walk and juggle to name a few.

Sgt Dan Smith, Entertainment Director for the event, said:

“The entertainment side couldn’t be done without [CSE]... They’ve been a fantastic help from the minute I got in touch right up to now.

"Nothing’s been too much trouble and they’ve given us fantastic acts to make the day go even better."

More than 3,500 people attended the event and after the air show and children’s entertainment came to a close, pop covers band The Altitudes finished the night with covers of Maroon 5, The Weeknd and Lynyrd Skynrd.

Production and music were donated to RAF Odiham by CSE’s welfare beneficiary fund.

As a not-for-profit organisation, any surplus made by CSE’s entertainment projects goes directly into a fund for the welfare of British Armed Forces personnel and their families, especially those in most need of a morale boost.
