Hedge End Scouts have asked me to pass on news about their 2016 Gang Show. Happy to oblige:
Hedge End Gang Show – Feb 2016
Hedge End Gang Show is back with big plans for their return to the Scouting Stage
with their ‘Best of British’ production which will hit the stage in February 2016.
Hedge End Gang Show has been providing creative activities for Scouts in and
around the Itchen district for over half a century having celebrated its 50th Birthday in
2013. After a few years away, the Gang Show is back with huge plans for their next
production ‘Best of British’ featuring the very best of British music, comedy and
variety from yester-year through to yesterday.
In 2013, Hedge End Gang Show entered the ‘Bright Sparks’ singing competition and
as competition finalists were chosen to perform vocals upon the ‘Project Christmas’
album which was professionally recorded and released on an international scale.
In October, Hedge End Gang Show commenced their revival by uniting with other
Scout shows from across Hampshire to perform in ‘Hampshire Scouts Present’ at the
Winchester Guildhall, entertaining a full house and receiving a standing ovation along
with their peers. Now, nearly 5 months of hard work later, their own district show is
almost ready. The cast are polishing their acts and adding final touches to the show,
scenery is having its final coats of paint and the last sequins being are being sewn
With a new show comes a new Producer with Kevin Harmer taking the helm. “This
show is a tribute to our great country, brought to you through comedy, song and
dance. All the music in the show has been written or performed by British artists. In
2016 we celebrate the 90th birthday of the longest running monarch, we also
celebrate 100 years of Cub Scouts. Four years ago we were preparing for the
Olympic Games and 50 years ago the Beatles did their last tour together. We
celebrate all these events and more in the show.
Hedge End Gang Show takes to the stage on 19th and 20th February at Wyvern
Technical College, Eastleigh with a matinee performance on Saturday 20th. Tickets
are £7 for children and £9 for adults and are available from
