Guides from across the County embarked on a day out to London's SSE Wembley Arena for the Big Gig, Girlguiding's very own pop concert. Girls from Amberley, Quedgeley, Dursley, Salem, Hatherley, Mersey Hampton and Battledown travelled by the coach loads to join 20,000 members of Girlguiding including Guides, Senior Section and Leaders.
Ella Henderson took headline spot with other acts including Gabriella Aplin, Aston from JLS and Gloucester ex-The Wanted band member Nathan Sykes. Each act brought their own style and personality to the event and the girls spent 2 hours bopping to the fantastic music.
"Ella Henderson was the best because she interacted with the crowd" says Emily, 13
"Jagmac was the best because they were a family and the dancing brought great vibes to the arena" says Lauren, 12
"It was a really joyful experience because you got to see loads of different singers at one concert" says Heather, 10
The day was made extra special for some girls as they made their Guide or Senior Section promise and one Leader was even presented with her Adult Leadership during the event.
