SWANK Guides

“Are you doing your best? Have you got your movement and music badge?”

Be enthused by the terribly terribly jolly ‘Val Keen’ and ‘Babs Eager’. With their jangling kit and ‘be prepared’ PMA (positive mental attitude), Val and Babs engage the public in achieving their SWANK GUIDES badges. Whether ‘Ging Gang Goolying’, ‘’Fit for Anything’ or simply ‘Doing My Best’, everyone is a badge winner and enjoys the ridiculous and hilarious badge presentation ceremony.

These strong female characters, inspired by Bunty and the best of British, are adaptable and flexible, easy to understand and everyone gets the game and loves to play. Bespoke SWANK Guide badges can also be made for your theme or event.

Classis SWANK characters, Val and Babs have developed from a walkabout (also great for meet and greet) into a show and a pop up installation – Joyous Jamboree.

SWANK Guides, the show is two handed 30 minute show packed with participation and a tacky pyrotechnic finish

In Joyous Jamboree, Val and Babs are joined by ‘Wendy Willing’ and ‘Mable B.Able’. Joyous Jamboree is a fully interactive SWANK Guide camp, complete with bivouacs, flagpoles and of course, the camp fire for good old sing songs. Join the pack in their natural habitat, learn skills you never knew you needed – play silly games and win an exciting range of new badges.

Join these good time Guides in their monstrously merry movement.
