 Edinburgh Gang Show 2019 – come and enjoy a fantastic performance!

There are only a few weeks to go until the curtain rises on the 60th Edinburgh Gang Show and the Gang of Cub Scouts, Brownies, Scouts, Guides, Explorer Scouts, Rangers and Scout Network members are working very hard to present another entertaining week at the King’s.

Every Sunday the Gang meet to rehearse their songs, dance routines and lines for sketches while the Wardrobe Team source, make and fit costumes, the Stage Crew make props and build scenery and the admin teams keep everybody in the right place at the right time. The Marketing Team is actively promoting the show, including having a presence at ScoutFest last month, creating social media content and editing the souvenir programme. It’s all going to plan…but we need YOU to be our audience!

Make 2019 the year you support the Edinburgh Gang Show. We guarantee you will enjoy the whole performance and be impressed with the talents of the young people in our region.

We’ll see you at the King’s!
