Easter 2016 will see the 2016 cast of The Hereford Gang Show taking to the stage at The Courtyard with what producer Ian Strangward hopes will be the best one yet. This show is the 25th anniversary of the show.

The first official Scout Gang Show was produced in London by Ralph Reader some 80 years ago; the Hereford show started in 1971. Ian says there is simply nothing else like it around – “it’s a variety show in the truest sense of the word. It’s two hours of pure fun, full of song, dance and comedy sketches for all the family to enjoy – there’s nothing quite like it around today.”

Early Gang Shows featured songs written by Ralph Reader himself, but today’s shows blend current pop hits with classic tunes from the past. The forthcoming show is no different. “We’ve got original sketches from local writers as well as one or two from the likes of Ronnie Corbett and Fry & Laurie too”, says Ian, who promises you’ll get plenty of opportunities to laugh during the evening!

With around 100 young people (some as young as 6) performing, Ian says you’re sure of one thing: “a great night out!”

The Hereford Gang Show runs from 29th March – 2nd April, and tickets are available from The Courtyard Box Office, telephone 01432 340555. Or you can buy them online from the Courtyard website
