My name is Fletcher, I am a comedy magician and a member of 1st Kenilworth Scouts. It was an absolutely amazing experience to perform at Gang Show 80 at the Birmingham Hippodrome and I shall never forget it.
I was the host for the show and I also, just before the end of the show, did a slot of magic (I am a member of the Magic Circle and also a member of the Secret 6 - so secret I don't know who the other 5 are.....!). It was incredible to wander around back stage and to get lost - it was such a maze back there - and to think of all the famous who had performed there and got lost in the same places I did. The staff and back stage crew were brilliant as they were so interesting about all the famous people they had met there and what they were really like. The audience was fantastic - encouraging and helped to make the occasion.
Without scouting and the gang show I would never have had the chance to be there in front of 1800 people in such a brilliant theatre - so my advice for young, hungry scouts is - eat something - no...get stuck in with scouting.
Thank you again for the amazing opportunity to join in the Gang Show 80.
