Aberdeen Scout Gang Show


Since 1957 Aberdeen Scouts have been riding along on the crest of a wave and entertaining Aberdeenshire audiences in a range of venues such as His Majesty's Theatre Aberdeen, The Tivoli, Aberdeen High School for Girls (now Harlaw Academy), Hilton College and now the Aberdeen Arts Centre in King Street.

The sets, performances and scripts for the Aberdeen Scout Gang Show are professionally produced making for an entertaining performance. The Aberdeen Gangshows are of such a high standard that they were awarded the much coveted red scarf by Gang Show founder Ralph Reader in 1960. This entitles each Cub, Scout, Explorer, Scout Leader and Venture Scout who performs at a Gang Show to wear a red neckerchief scarf. By keeping the performances to a high standard the Aberdeen Scouting movement have retained their red necker status.

Each performance of the Aberdeen Scout Gang Show has a range of comedy sketches, songs, dances

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.
