Largest Game of Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes

Guinness World Records™ Adjudicator Carl Saville attended this amazing record attempt at the SkyFest event in Middlesex, UK, on 18 July 2009.

Sky and The Rouge Partnership were attempting to beat the current record for the largest game of head, shoulders, knees and toes, which stood at 1,217 people and was achieved last year in Taiwan.

The SkyFest team had been working for months preparing for this record attempt, making sure every last detail was in place ready to try and set a new Guinness World Records achievement.

The weather was holding out and the clock was ticking down ready for the attempt to start. Crowds came in from all over the festival, eagerly awaiting the exciting record attempt.

With a total of 1,375 people – of all ages – ready to take part, the SkyFest team was all set to get underway, and they started both the clock and the music. Not everyone was successful, however, and I discounted 123 people, which still gave a total count of 1,252 and established a new Guinness World Records achievement!

As the dark clouds stayed away and the sun shone (occasionally), everyone enjoyed the event; what's more, setting a new record really brought all the families together. People stayed on after the record attempt as there was still a lot happening at SkyFest, including fairground rides and children's entertainers.
