We are sorry to announce that Wycombe Abbey School have cancelled all external bookings, which involves large gatherings of people onsite during the Easter Holidays, due to the situation regarding the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19) in the UK. As this has an effect on our booking, we are actively putting into place plans for the future of the 2020 High Wycombe Gang Show. Our team of volunteers are working through the ramifications of this unprecedented situation, in order to deliver the show you deserve, later this year. Those who have purchased tickets will be contacted directly by the Box Office Team. Further information will be communicated with the relevant parties as soon as it is available. We thank you for your continued support and understanding at this time.
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.
