LIVE 07 - Festival of Scouting

Three of Crofton Cubs performed as part of the central Yorkshire cub cast in the Live 07 festival of scouting. A lot of hard work was put in by our cubs from the first rehearsal right to the last show and the grand finale. This has been a fantastic event to be part off and one we will all remember for many years. Scouts gathered from all over the UK to put together two 3hour shows to an audience of around 30,000 people.

The cubs day started at 10.00am at the 02 Arena in London, and they finally got to go home at 10.30pm. It was a long day but well worth it. The cubs performance was excellent, not only on stage but also backstage when there was a lot of waiting for their moment of fame. WELL DONE CUBS !!!!

More details on the Live07 day, including a picture of the cubs parachute performance, can be seen at the following link (on Scouts official website):
