GIRL guides from around the Dursley area were dazzled by some of the biggest stars in UK pop as they headed to a special girl-only gig at Wembley Arena.

The girls joined a crowd of 20,000 at Girlguiding’s ‘BIG GIG’ held exclusively for Guides from all over the UK on Saturday.

The 42 girls, all aged between 10 and 16, enjoyed performances from a line-up including Ella Henderson and Nathan Sykes.

Anne Anderson and fellow Guide leaders led the girls on their adventure to Wembley.

She said: “Girlguiding offer this amazing opportunity for girls to attend a large scale pop concert in an iconic venue and provides the girls and leaders with a safe environment for them to enjoy themselves.

“It was a real adventure and the girls are already looking forward to going again next year.”

The BIG GIG is hosted by Girlguiding for members over 10 and has seen some big names – including Ed Sheeran, Tinie Tempah and Rita Ora – perform at major venues around the UK over its 14-year history.
