High Wycombe Gang Show is returning in 2022!
We are delighted to announce that we are in the final stages of planning for a show just before Easter 2022
The High Wycombe Gang Show is now in its 34th year and is a variety family show with a mix of old and new music, comedy and dance items all performed by a cast of over 80 members of the local Scout & Guide movements from age 8 to sixty something! The show also has a live band, makes all its’ own costumes and builds all its own scenery and props. Every year the show raises money for a local charity. Gang Show is an extra activity that any member of scouting or guiding can do alongside their usual weekly meeting with their group. ANYONE who is a current member of the Scout or Guide movements over the age of 8 by show 1st night can take part.
- We are an ALL INCLUSIVE show and are very proud to be so. This means we do not have entry criteria based on singing or dancing ability. All we require is a good attitude to learning and lots of enthusiasm.
- We will NEVER ask anyone who doesn’t want to, to sing or dance on their own. There will not be an X-Factor type audition process.
- We WANT people in our show who will value their place in the cast and who will give Gang Show 100% commitment and effort.

It is said that somewhere, everyday of every year, a Gang Show is being performed. Sometimes this is in a Scout centre, a village hall or a local theatre, here in High Wycombe we use the superb facilities of the Lancaster Arts Centre at Wycombe Abbey Girls School.
Gang Shows have a rich history, from their London show beginnings in 1932 under the direction of Ralph Reader to the shows of today which combine new and original material, popular music and dance with old Gang Show traditions.
Our show here in High Wycombe is officially recognised by the Scout Association to be of such a high standard that it meets all of the criteria for both on-stage performance and back stage management.
Our Gang consists of 100+ local members of the Scout and Guide Associations who produce, manage and perform the entire show. If you have never been to one of our shows before let us amaze you with the enthusiasm and talent of our local cast.
