We Went To BIGGIG 2016!

On Saturday 2nd July, some of the biggest pop acts in the UK gathered at Wembley Arena to play a massive concert just for members of Girlguiding called BIG GIG! Guides, Senior Section members and Leaders from all over the country travelled to London to watch the artists perform, including a some of our girls from Birmingham.

It was the 15th anniversary of BIG GIG, with previous performers including The Vamps, Olly Murs, Calvin Harris, Union J, Diversity and Little Mix! This year, Guides and Senior Section from across the county (myself included!) travelled to London to see, Jess Glynne, Fleur East and Imani Williams among others. All the girls I spoke to had an amazing time, with highlights being Jess Glynne’s incredible show and a surprise performance from Lawson.

Travelling back home we met lots of shattered but very happy Guides (decked out in fancy dress, face paint and deely boppers, of course!) at service stations along the way and it was clear that everyone had a great day out!
