A message from our Chairman

9th December 2020

Looking back 8 months ago we had to make the difficult decision to postpone our 2020 show due to the COVID pandemic. Who could have predicted how this has turned out and the turmoil it has caused.

We would usually be putting the finishing touches to the plans for our 2021 show but it is becoming obvious that in January, there will still be disruption and even when the inoculations start to become available, it will be some time before everyone is protected and safe from infection.

We had considered staging a show later in 2021 but to make plans for a show prior to the Summer is still risky and if we are planning for an Autumn Show then this would have an impact on the 2022 Show.

It is therefore with great reluctance and sadness that we have decided that our next show will not be until Easter 2022. We are sadly not the only Gang Show that is affected in these current times.

To our cast, crew and supporters; you all deserve a huge thank you for working so hard on the show that was so close to being staged at Easter 2020 and have been remaining positive while waiting to find out if we can perform in 2021.

Stay safe everyone and hope that we are all able to meet up soon.

Geoff Coulson - Chairman

COVID-19 Update

19th March 2020

We have been closely monitoring the ongoing COVDID 19 situation along with the latest government guidelines and directive from The Scouts and Girlguiding UK. The advice from Government is also that theatres should close.

We are incredibly sad to share the news that unfortunately due to current restrictions, we are unable to continue with rehearsals and will be unable to perform as planned on the 14th - 18th April. All face to face Scouting has been paused and we are working hard to try to reschedule the show until later in the year. Our cast are obviously frustrated and upset that all their hard work and the run up to the show has to stop but naturally support this decision.

We are working through the arrangements for refunds/transfer of tickets as appropriate and will post regular updates via this channel and our website. Thank you for your continued support and we hope to be able to bring Newcastle Gang Show, the oldest running Gang Show in the world to the stage in the not too distant future. We will be back!

Sparkle and Shine!

20th December 2019

Calling all members of Scouting and Guiding across Northumberland! Newcastle Gang Show is once again taking place in April 2020, packed full of singing, dancing and comedy coming together as a variety show perfect for the whole family to enjoy. We’re looking for Scouts and Guides to sparkle and shine performing in the show. It’s a fantastic opportunity to try something new, learn loads of skills, build confidence and make plenty of new friends along the way.

Sounds good? Pop along to our first rehearsal and information session on Sunday 5th January from 2pm till 5pm at Simonside Methodist Church, Heaton, NE6 5JX. Parents are encouraged to stay for the first hour to find out all about the show and how it works. Youth members should wear their uniform. So we can have a indication of numbers we’d ask that everyone attends where possible, if not let us know your interested so we can gage how many people would like to take part in the show. Rehearsals take place every Sunday afternoon, with dance rehearsals on a weekday evening to be confirmed.

The show takes place from Tuesday 14th to Saturday 18th April 2020 at the People’s Theatre in Heaton with shows nightly at 7pm and a Saturday matinee at 2pm.
