Tickets are now on sale for this year's St Albans Gang Show, which takes place at the Alban Arena in February.

The all-singing, all-dancing show returned last year following a two-year hiatus, and features young people aged 11 to 18 in scouts and girlguiding.

Performances take place from Wednesday, February 14 to Sunday, February 17. Tickets can be ordered online from or by texting or calling the volunteer-run box office on 07885 661780.

The scouts and guides have been rehearsing the variety show since October, and will perform a mix of musical numbers, comedy sketches and dances.

Spanning several decades and wide breadth of musical genres, the cast will perform hits by One Direction, Dean Martin, Run DMC, Glenn Miller, Blur, Billie Eilish, Pink and more.

Gang Show is run by a dedicated team of volunteers, with 150 adults giving their free time to build the show and lead rehearsals, more than 1,000 costumes made, a live band of professional musicians, 96 children taking part and a behind-the-scenes team of set builders, managers and administrators.

Some members of the cast were asked to perform at Windsor Castle for a national scout event last year, in front of members of the Royal Family and Chief Scout Bear Grylls.

Producer Hermione Drew said: "It is great to be back rehearsing a brand new show for 2024.

"We have lots of new creative ideas, the cast are loving all the song choices so far and starting to get excited about the dance routines and comedy sketches that are being taught.


"It is always such a wonderful atmosphere during show week at the Alban Arena to see so many friendly faces from our local community supporting the show.

"We can’t wait for February to come!"

The first St Albans Gang Show was performed in 1939, with a cast of 89 boys.

St Albans District Scouts and Guides staged their first Gang Show in 1980, and have produced an annual show ever since with the exception of the pandemic years.

Previous shows are available to be ordered on USB from the Gang Show website.
