We've booked to attend the 2020 event. What happens now?

If you've already booked onto this event and this new date isn’t suitable for your unit, we’ll refund all monies paid, including any deposit as per our terms and conditions.

If your unit is available on this date and you’d like to change your booking to the new date, we’ll do that for you.

In light of the situation, we understand that you may not be able to commit to the same girls going next year so we’ll hold your booking as it stands until 1 October 2020 so that you can confirm numbers for 2021. Should you reduce your numbers before 1 October 2020 you’ll be entitled for a full refund for those spaces. After this date you won’t be entitled to a refund as per our terms and conditions.

Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time.

What’s happening

There are four zones for you to explore, covering everything from climate change to movie magic, fashion futures to medical innovations. You’ll also have the chance to meet the women who are changing the world with science and technology. And be the first to try the latest gadgets and tech too.

The four zones:

  • You - This one’s all about you (and the 7 billion other humans on the planet!). How can cutting edge science and tech keep us all healthy? Try activities such as performing surgery with a robot.
  • Your everyday - Look at the world around you and you’ll see technology is everywhere - from how we communicate to the clothes we wear and what we watch. Try activities such as codebreaking and wearing fashion tech.
  • Your future - What’s next? Enter the brave new world of tomorrow’s technology and think about how it might change how we live. Try activities such as interacting with robots and stepping into virtual reality.
  • Your universe - Go where no guiding unit has gone before. Explore planet earth, the environment and the mind-bending universe beyond. Try activities such as space science and stargazing and explore climate change.

Your night

The fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. Wonder at the universe with our stargazers, dance the night away at the silent disco or see if you can beat our retro computer games.

Who'll be there?

As well as having fun with your fellow Brownies, Guides and Rangers, you'll be able to learn from some of our expert partners. Check back regularly as we’ll be adding more partners as they are confirmed.
