Gang Show is Oxfordshire Scouts performing arts opportunity for Cubs, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and Scout Network, ending in a week of variety performances.
Details about the
Gang Show Audition Workshops for the 2018 show can be found here.  It is in the form of a poster so please could you distribute it far and wide and ask people to pin it up in their Headquarters.  I have also included the “Who can join the Gang” information to accompany the workshop info.

Ben & Sara Get Married, 6th August.

posted 7 Aug 2016, 13:16 by Chris Watkins   [ updated 7 Aug 2016, 13:20 ]

On a gorgeous sunny day, Ben and Sara got married at St Mary's Church North Leigh.
Scouts and Explorers were there to provide the traditional guard of honour.
The reception was held at Cogges Manor, which was a fabulous venue and family and friends had a wonderful time, celebrating with the newly weds, amongst those were many past scouts, and present leaders.
1st Standlake & Cokethorpe Sea Scouts and West Oxon Sea Explorers Scout Unit would like to wish the happy couple all the very best for the future.

Congratulations to Our Queen's Scouts!

Gang Show 2017 Workshops

posted 1 Mar 2016, 02:10 by Sam Scott

If you would like to do next year’s show you need to come to one of the three workshops.  You do not have to come to all of them, just one.  The dates are as follows:

Monday 7th March 2016 (next Monday), 19.00 - 20.30 at 28th Oxford Scout HQ, Fairlie Road, Littlemore, Oxford OX4 3SW.
Saturday 30th April 2016, 14.00 - 17.00 at Youlbury SAC, Boars Hill, Oxford OX1 5HD.  This workshop will be at the Gang Show Camp so those of you on the camp will get to do it but you can come and do the Workshop whether you are on the camp or not.
Sunday 16th October 2016, 10.00 - 12.00 at Edward Feild Primary School, Kidlington - this is to be confirmed.

If you could let me know which workshop you will be coming to that would help the logistics or if you have decided not to do next years show if you could just let me know that would be useful.

Please come in uniform to the workshop.  I have attached a poster containing the information above - if you could print it out and ask your Leader to put it up in your meeting place and encourage others to join us.  A challenge for you - bring a friend to the Workshop who hasn’t done the show before.  You need to be 8 years old and under 25 years old on Sunday 12th February 2017 and an active member of The Scout Association or GirlGuiding UK to be in the Gang.

Rehearsals will be similar to this years and we hope to be rehearsing at Edward Feild School again but that has still to be confirmed.

Show week is Monday 13th February 2017 - Saturday 18th February 2017 with the dress rehearsal on Saturday 11th February 2017.  The first rehearsal will be Sunday 16th October 2016.

Many thanks
