No Edinburgh Gang Show in 2020

The Edinburgh Gang Show Management Team has announced that it has cancelled this year’s show because of ongoing concerns about Covid-19.

However they intend to present some kind of virtual performance in November, at the time when the show was supposed to be being staged at Edinburgh’s King’s theatre.

The Gang Show was due to play six performances at the King’s from Tuesday 17 to Saturday 21 November 21 2020. This will be the first time in 60 years that the Gang Show has not been in an Edinburgh theatre.

The management team say that their priority is the safety of their young people and adult volunteers.

“The Gang may not be able to meet in person but we are planning to present a virtual performance in November,” according to the management team.


“The performance will showcase the talent of our young people from South East Scotland Scouts and Girlguiding Edinburgh and bring the unique Gang Show spirit alive and online.

“Please follow our social media channels for more details.

“Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to 2021 when the Gang will once again be back at the King’s Theatre, Edinburgh to make more memories.”
