A group of excited Chelford Guides travelled to Sheffield's FlyDSA Arena on Saturday 19 October to enjoy a fabulous concert for 10,500 Guides from all over the UK.

'The Big Gig' is organised by Girlguiding Uk each year to enable members aged 10+ to come together and see some of the world's up-and-coming musical acts. Two identical concerts are held on the same day, entertaining 21,000 Guides in total.

This year's concert included Radio 1 presenter Adele Roberts, YouTube star Caspar lee, songwriter JC Stewart, girl band 'Four of Diamonds', X Factor winner 'Louisa', The Voice finalist Donel Mangena, Norwegian singer Dagny, boy bands 'New Rules' and 'Rak-SU', and X Factor finalist Fleur East.

Chelford Guide Leader Laura Chaffer said: "The girls all had a fantastic afternoon in Sheffield. The focus was on 'girl power' and making a difference – something our girls feel very strongly about."
Chelford Guides meet from 7pm-8.30pm on Tuesday evenings in Chelford Scout Hut during term time. New members – aged between 10 and 14 – are very welcome. Please contact Guider Alison Richardson on 07885 804246 for further information.
