GUIDES from Liversedge were among 30,000 screaming fans wowed by pop stars the Wanted, Pixie Lott, Ed Sheeran and Olly Murs.

Forty three members of Second Liversedge Guides and South District Rangers went to the Girlguiding UK’s Big Gig 2011, an exclusive pop concert for Guides.

Leader Cathy Scott said the event was hosted by children’s television presenter Helen Skelton, who was suggested by a huge number of girls on Girlguiding UK’s internet forum. One Guide even caught a towel thrown into the audience from one member of the Wanted.

Bethany White, 12, said: ‘The Big Gig was amazing. It was so much fun to watch famous pop stars and scream with my friends and thousands of Guides and Rangers!’

Cathy added: ‘All the girls had such a brilliant time at the BIG GIG. It’s fantastic that Girlguiding UK put together such an enjoyable and unique ‘girls-only’ day that’s so relevant to what the today are listening to.’
