Fun at the Guides' Big Gig


The Girl Guiding UK Big Gig is an annual musical event.

McFly headlined the gig in Manchester this year and Press Packer Beth was there to catch all the action.

"The Girl Guides' Big Gig is held at venues around the world and usually fills each arena.

This year McFly headlined the event and thrilled the audience by playing their new single, The Heart Never Lies.

Our Guide unit was lucky enough to secure tickets at the MEN arena in Manchester.

Early start

Other bands that played the Big Gig included The Hoosiers and Kate Nash who both gave amazing performances and made the crowd go mental.

Guide units from far away were there, even units from London who had got up at six in the morning to attend the show!


I felt sorry for McFly's Danny Jones because he was poorly.

But they still gave a thrilling show which had everyone mesmerised and singing along word by word to each track.

Tom Fletcher (lead vocals and guitarist with McFly) made the crowd sing along to It's All About You.

The atmosphere was great!"
