Aldershot Showreel logo

The ‘showreel’ for Aldershot has been produced by Rushmoor Borough Council, with support from Grainger plc, to showcase Aldershot’s key benefits. It focuses on the town’s sports and cultural facilities, access to many open green spaces and parks, easy travel access to and from many locations, and the history of the area. The aim is to show people what Aldershot has to offer to both residents and visitors.

The showreel is 3.27 minutes long, with a music-only backing track which can be used or silenced. It can be used by anyone and schools and colleges could consider using it as part of recruitment packs or welcome meetings for new parents and staff.

If you require any support with using this link, or would like an MP4 file of the showreel instead, please contact Gill Chisnall, Communications Manager at Rushmoor, by email or phone.
