Cubs100 has been launched by the Scouting movement to celebrate the centenary of the launch of the Cub Scout movement, andnd the 30th Birthday of the Beaver Scouts.

Celebrations are taking place across the country in the lead up to the official birthday of the Cubs, 16th December. This was the day in 1916 when the Wolf Cubs were launched.  2016 is also the 30th birthday of the Beaver Scouts, launched in 1986. And Ferneham Hall in Fareham is holding its own Promise Party during a performance of its traditional family pantomime Sleeping Beauty.

Promise Parties will take place across the UK and each and every Cub will be invited to attend parties organised locally, and remake their Promise. The aim is to end the year with a huge nationwide Promise Party at 19:16 (7:16pm) on 16 December. Beaver Scouts are also being invited to take part as one of their 30 challenges to help celebrate the 6 – 8 year old section of the Scouting movement.

This means that Cubs Scouts and Beaver Scouts watching the 6.00pm performance of Sleeping Beauty (which stars Hear’say’s Noel Sullivan and CBBC’s Kay Purcell) will be able to remake their Promise during the interval of the pantomime at Ferneham Hall, as well as enjoying a slice of the huge birthday cake baked for the occasion.

Many local groups have already booked to attend and the invitation is now going out to all Cub Scout and Beaver Scout groups, as well as past members of any age and indeed anyone in the Scouting and Guiding community to enjoy this fantastic spectacle.


Sleeping Beauty is at Ferneham Hall, Fareham 9 – 31 December.

Tickets for 16th December at 6.00pm are just £14 each.
