Christmas Concert 2017

Recently we announced our plans to have a Christmas Concert on Friday 15th December. This will be joint event between Swindon North & Ridgeway to celebrate the end of the year and to support the Swindon Gangshow.


Be Heard

We’ll be putting together a Gangshow choir to perform Carols & Christmas songs. There will be mix of group songs and possibility of solos & small groups to sing. This will be open to all members from our supporting districts of Swindon North & Ridgeway Scouts and Wiltshire North Guiding who are 8 years or older. If you’ve never been part of the show before this is a great opportunity to get involved!

Be Part

We’d also challenging groups in the district to make performing arts part of their programme in Autumn 2017 and contribute their own items, which we will intersperse throughout the evening. This might be, a sketch or skit, a song, a traditional Nativity, a dance or a musical performance and can involve your whole section, a small group or an individual. This is an opportunity to showcase the talent we have in our supporting districts.

If you are interested in finding out more about having your group or section contribute an item for the Christmas Concert then please register your interest here.

Please note that you are not committing to being part of the show, just that you would like more information!
