Big Brownie Birthday

The Big Brownie Birthday logoThe Brownie section is now 100 years old - and we marked it by holding The Big Brownie Birthday.

This celebration brought exciting opportunities and events to Brownies across the UK and beyond.

Celebrate the Big Brownie Birthday


A resource designed for Brownies to make their own decisions, develop new skills and celebrate 100 years of our biggest section. This came with a specially designed badge. There were also Challenge packs for Rainbows, Guides, Senior Section and adults.


Star Quest

A one-day event celebrating Brownies, highlighting the fun and excitement of being one. During the day Brownies starred in their very own cosmic story, travelling through three time zones to take part in challenges and enjoy new and exciting adventures.

Stay Away

A residential (staying away overnight) event giving Brownies a fun, unique and memorable experience to encourage them to remain in guiding and look forward to Guides.


World Centres

A chance for Brownies to have an international experience without leaving the UK. World Centres was a series of organised weekends where UK Training and Activity Centres (TACs) were transformed into three of the WAGGGS World Centres: Sangam in India, Our Cabaña in Mexico, or Our Chalet in Switzerland.


Euro Hop

An organised four-day international trip for Brownies to France, including a day trip to Belgium, offered in association with Venture Abroad.
