Meet the Gang

For years I have been involved in guiding and scouting and most of those years I have spent either on stage or backstage performing or photographing Gang Shows... what's a gang show? Let me enlighten you!

A Gang Show is a variety style theatre performance by members of Scouts and Guides. It was started by a guy called Ralph Reader in 1931 as a variety show to help raise money for a swimming pool at a local campsite. Today there are shows all across the country and I love the opportunity to photograph the Nottingham one regularly.

With a pandemic break (how sad that's now a common phrase) the gang are BACK and rehearsing hard for their first show since 2019. Taking place at the Theatre Royal Nottingham in March 2023 tickets are NOW ON SALE!

Check out some of my favourite photos from 2019 below....
