What’s the dress code?
We want to embrace this year’s theme, so look out those groovy boardshorts and psychedelic skirts. We’d encourage you to wear a purple Scout Pride t-shirt (limited supply available on the day for those without).
Wear your local scarf or rainbow scarf (option to purchase on the day) and trainers (you’ll be on your feet for about 3 hours).

Children (under 16) can attend with their parents, please provide details when registering.
