Harrogate Gang Show Spectacular

The Harrogate Gang Show takes place every 2 years in April in the royal hall, it is a show put on by the members of the Harrogate Scout and Guide association. Children from as young as 5 years old to 18 years old took part in creating a singing, dancing and toe tapping spectacular!

Here are some of the highlights

This year’s show was kicked off with a hearty version of ‘Be Part of our Gang’ a song specially written for gang shows. The Brownies and Cubs gave a very enthusiastic rendition of Gareth Malone’s choir, ‘Do Re Mi’ followed by ‘A Handful of Songs’, and ‘I’d Like to Teach The World to Sing’. The Rainbows and Beavers took a trip to the bottom of the sea and told some very fishy jokes before singing ‘Under the Sea’.

 It was all hoting  when suddenly Apollo 11 landed.  Out came a group of Guides and Scouts who had turned into spacemen. Our very own Neil Armstrong arrived singing ‘A Weekend On the Moon’ and was later joined by Buzz Aldrin.  Other songs included ‘Catch a Falling Star ,‘Good Morning Star Shine’, ,‘When You Wish Upon a Star’ followed by ‘Fly Me To the Moon’ , ‘Moon River’ and rounded it off by spending ‘A Weekend On The Moon’.


 ‘Saturday Night at the Movies’ started the Oscar’s ceremony. The first award went to Titanic for the best film presented by ‘Helen Mirren’ who fortunately kept her remarks clean. We sang ‘New York, New York’ in tribute to Martin Scorsese, before Sharon Osborn gave the award for best song we then sang ‘Skyfall’. This was followed by an award presented by Kylie Minogue .for best cartoon which was given to Toy Story we sang ‘you’ve got a friend in me’. The final award was for best actress presented to ‘Anne Hathaway’ our final song was ‘do you hear the people sing’.
