Pre-orders are being taken for the live DVD version of the musical spectacular that was this year's Beating Retreat, held at Horse Guards Parade, London, 3-4 June 2014.

The event saw over 200 members of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines joined on parade by bands from the United States Marine Corps and the Royal Netherlands Marine Corps.

Collectively this represented the biggest ever Royal Marines Beating Retreat witnessed in London.

This Royal and world-renowned event, is performed every two years in celebration of the birthday of the Captain General of the Royal Marines, His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. This year, the event was extra ordinary as it formed part of a busy schedule of UK-wide celebrations to mark the 350th Anniversary of the Royal Marines, known as RM350.
