It’s November… it’s GANG SHOW time!
On 14th November 1960 the first Edinburgh Gang Show was performed at the King’s Theatre, Edinburgh. For sixty years young people from Scouting and Girlguiding in Scotland’s capital have entertained thousands of people with the annual show in November at the King’s.
Today this Edinburgh institution continues to give young people the opportunity to perform in one of the city’s much-loved theatres and through their participation our young people gain skills for life. Gang Show is a major part of the Scouting and Girlguiding programme and with the enthusiasm, commitment and ongoing support of Gang Show followers it will remain so for many years to come.
We have got a lot to be thankful for!

Gang Show is back!
We are very excited to announce that plans are well advanced for the return of the Edinburgh Gang Show!
Due to the global pandemic we have been unable to perform our usual high-quality, vibrant show for two years but in November 2022 young people from South East Scotland Scouts and Girlguiding Edinburgh will entertain audiences once again.
A different theatre – same Gang Show energy!
Edinburgh Gang Show 2022 will be staged at the Festival Theatre because the King’s Theatre will close for a major redevelopment in 2022. This will only be the second time in our history that the Gang Show will be performed in a different theatre but it will provide a great opportunity for our cast and crew to experience the thrill of staging an even bigger and better show to even more audiences!
A major cast recruitment campaign will be launched in early 2022 to form a Main Gang and a Junior Gang of cast members. Information will be communicated through South East Scotland Scouts and Girlguiding Edinburgh and on our socials.
In 2022 we will celebrate 90 years since the first Gang Show in London. With the return of our celebrated show it is fitting that we will acknowledge our heritage but also make history as we begin a very new chapter of the Edinburgh Gang Show! We simply call it ‘Making Memories’.
