Still time to see Gang Show

SCOUTS are currently performing in the Blyth Valley Gang Show.

The family variety show has 64 talented cubs, scouts, explorers and leaders performing a wide range of musical numbers, packed full of song and dance, along with the traditional comedy sketches.

This year’s performance is a special one for the gang as they celebrating their 20th anniversary.

The first show was in 1992 held at Astley Community High School in Seaton Delaval.

The show runs until Saturday at The Phoenix Theatre in Blyth nightly at 7pm with the Saturday matinee at 2pm.

Tickets are £8 for evening performances and £7 for the matinee from the box office on (01670) 367228 or by visiting

The scouts have performed every two years since then, providing great entertainment to the local community as well as giving young people the opportunity to take to the stage and ‘tread the boards’.

Stu Bennett, one of the shows assistant producers, said: “The show features a mix of modern chart music, along with the traditional and better known songs.

“From Lady Gaga, The Black Eyed Peas and Adele, to the Gang Show classic ‘On the Crest of a Wave’, the show is suitable for all the family. You really don’t have to be a scout to enjoy our show, so come along and see how talented young people really are.”

Deputy producer Robbie Leese said: “With it being our 20th anniversary show, we’ve got a special 20 years number, featuring the best songs from all our previous shows.”
