Giving girls an unforgettable day at TARTAN GIG

Are your taking your girls to TARTAN GIG 2017? Janice, Leader, shares why the 6th Clydebank Guides can’t wait for another unforgettable day!

What was your first gig? For most of us our first big pop concert is one of those unforgettable experiences that stick with us for decades later. And what could be better than making those memories at an exclusive gig just for you and your friends?

To me, that’s what makes TARTAN GIG so special – giving girls the chance to enjoy an unforgettable experience that’s totally unique.

I know for many Leaders the thought of taking girls to a massive pop concert is a little nerve-wracking – maybe even downright scary! I felt the same way before taking our unit turned out to be one of the highlights of our year and we can’t wait to join the party at TARTAN GIG 2017!

After putting some finishing touches to our TARTAN GIG look (lots of glitter, bunny ears and wild wigs) we hopped on a train to begin our adventure. As soon as we arrived the excitement and party atmosphere were palpable. It was great to see Girlguiding Scotland members from all over the country and everyone was so friendly and welcoming.

When the lights went up on the first act and all we could hear was thousands of girls cheering and screaming it really did feel like we were all at one giant party. It was so much fun seeing my Guides singing and dancing along to stars like Labrinth, Rixton, Nina Nesbitt and Connor Maynard.

The girls were buzzing about TARTAN GIG for weeks afterwards and my unit can’t wait to come for this year’s concert at The SSE Hydro – which promises to be the biggest and best yet. Some of my older Guides who were there in 2015 have been telling the newer Guides all about the last gig and how much fun they had so now the whole unit can’t wait to go. They’re already planning out their TARTAN GIG style!

My advice to any Leaders of girls age 10 and over is to make sure you don’t miss out on this unique experience for you and your girls. Large-scale events like this are an amazing opportunity for your girls to come together with members from across Scotland and beyond and feel like they’re a part of something bigger. Plus there’s loads of advice and tips at the TARTAN GIG online hub to help you plan an amazing day out for you and your girls.

So what are you waiting for? Look out those light-up bunny ears and join the party on 17 June!
