Day 13 Closing Ceremony

The Jamboree Closing Ceremony marks the official end to the Jamboree with over 40,000 Scouts gathered to say goodbye.

An amazing site to see everyone. Some great music from Kate Ryan (Belgium Hottie!) and Europe (of the Final Countdown fame).

The King of Sweden said his official speech then led the way in a rocket countdown which involved him frantically slapping his knees with a fantastic firework display to finish off.

It rained most of the 2 hours and I forgot my coat so wet through!!

Back at the tent I got my head down as work starts at 7 in the morning. Thunder and lightening crashing around, I’m glad I’ve got my ear plugs!
