Gang Show is musical review, the cast comprisingover 100 members of the local Scout and Guide Associations. Many people have the preconceived idea that a 'Gang Show' is a bunch of scouts singing campfire songs, probably off-key and dressed in a dubious collection of costumes. Gosport Gang Show's musical repertoire ranges from Berlin & Porter to Verdi and Lloyd Webber, as well as Queen, Beatles, material of Ralph Reader and completely original material. Combine this with an average 1000 costumes per show, you have an entertainment of extremely high standard.
Dictionary definitions of profit quote such words as advantage, benefit, and value, all of which can be considered outside the financial sphere. If one does so, then the Scout Association is an extremely profitable organisation. Recognised by industry as providing sound leadership training, the advantages, benefits and value of its work can be measured by the fact that it remains the largest youth organisation in the world.
As a company Gosport Scout Gang Show wastes nothing. None of the 'workforce' takes any wages, and none claims expenses. By careful management and substantial self-help most years a small financial surplus is achieved and is ploughed back into the next production. However, to attain these dividends requires finance some £20,000 per year in excess of what can be raised at the Box Office.

Sponsorship of the show offers far greater opportunity for advertising. Sponsors are listed on a leading page of the programme and the inclusive half page advert for each sponsor will be placed in a preferential position. Sponsors are also mentioned in pre-show advertising in the local newspaper and given a hyper-link from our web-site to their own.
Two representatives of each sponsoring organisation are invited to the Gala Evening of the Show, where a full meal, with wine, is served during the interval. A bar is also open during this show, serving in cabaret style to tables.
A minimum contribution of £250 is required from our Sponsors.
Sponsors may take further advertising space, cost pro rata as above. There is also a Premier Sponsorship scheme offering even greater exposure.

If you feel you cannot support us by either sponsorship or advertising perhaps you could donate a prize for one of the many raffles and draws that we will be holding to raise the necessary money to make this exciting project possible.
