On Tuesday, we went along to the Basingstoke Haymarket theatre with Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts from the 1st Chineham Scout Group to watch this years’ production of the Basingstoke Gang Show. If you don’t know what a Gang Show is, it is a variety show performed by members of the Scout and Girlguiding associations. The Basingstoke Gang Show brings together members from both of our districts: Basingstoke East and Basingstoke West.
We had a great time, the show was excellent, and it was great to see a number of our Phoenix Explorer Scouts in the show. For the Explorer Scouts that took part in the show, they will be earning their Performing Arts Activity Badge for all the time, dedication, and hard work that goes into putting on this show. The show will hopefully be back in 2020 for it’s biennial running.
