Tameside Cultural Services have joined up with Girlguiding Uk to celebrate the "Big Brownie Birthday" the 100th anniversary of the Girl Guides movement.
Tameside Council has created a Bespoke Arts Award as part of the celebrations with the help of Stone Soup a creative Company based in Tameside, and Curious Minds, the Art's Council's bridge organisation in the Northwest.
To qualify for the Arts award the youngsters will be focusing on Tameside's heritage and will have the chance to take part in sleepovers at Portland Basin and Guide Bridge Theatre. Colleen Roberts,Girl Guides Divisional Commander,Ashton said "we are delighted to be partnering Tameside during this special year. Portland Basin Museum is a popular venue which many of our units have asked to visit. To be the first group to sleepover there makes it all the more special we are looking forward to being involved in the project."
