Who can come to Tartan Gig
This is an event for members of Girlguiding Scotland and Girlguiding members from other countries and regions. We reserve the right to cancel any orders made by non-members.
Brownies*, Guides, Rangers and adult volunteers are invited.
*We recommend that Tartan Gig is more suitable for older Brownies upwards as it does involve lots of loud noise, flashing lights, steep stairs and pyrotechnics. You’ll know your girls best so please consider how they would handle an event of this scale.
Which acts will be performing?

How do I get ready for the day?
If you’re taking girls aged under 18 you’ll need parental permission. If you’ve never taken girls to a large-scale event check out Girlguiding’s helpful guide which has information on planning, safe-guarding, travel, first aid and more
What about transport and parking?

What should we bring on the day?
Remember to bring consent forms, a first aid kit and a fully charged mobile phone.
You will also want to bring snacks and make arrangements for having a meal or bringing a packed meal to eat on the bus before or after. You can bring plastic bottles or cartons of juice or water into the venue, but please note, no glass bottles are allowed.

What should we wear?
With 10,000 girls expected to come along you’ll want to make sure your unit stands out – and that you can spot your girls in a crowd!
Think about something that can help identify your unit – for example custom neckies, silly wigs or T-shirts in the same bright colour. Please note though – no feather boas are allowed!
From wacky hats to glow in the dark face-paint – we can’t wait to see your Tartan Gig style!
Will there be a Girlguiding Scotland Shop?
