As part of the Frome Festival (SW UK), Students of all local schools, their families, friends and everyone in Frome are invited by The Frome Times, Kumon Frome Study Centre and Absolutely Fabulous Costume Hire to attempt the Guinness World Record for the Greatest Number of People Dressed as Characters from the Wizard of Oz.
The attempt to beat the current record of 446 will take place on Sunday 13th July 2014.
The registration fee is only £1 per participant and all money raised will be used to buy books for participating schools. A free assembly with local author, David Gatward, on the theme of the Wizard of Oz is available for all schools taking part. At these sessions characters from the book will also appear! These will be great events to tie in with World Book day in March 2014. Schools will be provided with flyers and a poster to help promote the event. A number of other events to promote this Guinness World Record attempt will also be running in Frome, including art sessions, reading sessions and the showing of the original film at the Westway Cinema after the record attempt.
