Wellies and Wristbands online
Keeping the festival spirit alive and online! Join us on Saturday 29 August
Festival fun, music and more
We’re really excited to bring you Wellies and Wristbands Online!
From 5pm on Saturday 29 August we invite you to join us for an afternoon full of fun and music, all through your computer. We were so disappointed that this year we had to cancel our favorite festival for Guides and Rangers, we just had to find a way to recreate it for you virtually!
It's all free and open to everyone. Join us here or on our YouTube channel for a packed programme of videos. Get festival ready in your home or garden to really bring the Wellies and Wristbands experience to life.
The action starts at 5pm!

The campfire snack session with Kimberley Mulcahy

Singalong with some of your favorite campfire songs, from the fire side at our activity centre Foxlease and at home with some of our members.
Mia and Irene
Guide and Ranger leaders Irene and Mia from 3rd Rochdale units will be leading us through some of your favourite campfire songs. Waddow Hall is like their second home having attended every year since 2001, from unit holidays to all the main events including Wellies and Wristbands. They both love the memories created by all these special events and the friends they make along the way.
Catherine is the Front Office Manager at Foxlease and would usually be busy running around organising Wellies and Wristbands. Instead, she'll be joining us for some campfire fun. She’s already working on how to make Wellies and Wristbands 2021 bigger and better than ever before!
