Clumber’s world record bid

Join the National Trust’s Clumber Park to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, with a street party and world record attempt on 3rd and 4th June.

As part of the Big Jubilee Lunch, the Clumber team is attempting to break the world record for the longest string of bunting - and they need your help to make record breaking history.

The official Guinness record is currently held by the Fairtrade Foundation in London, who created a line of bunting measuring 3,427.94 meters long. To break that record the Clumber team needs to string over 20,000 pieces of bunting together.

Clumber Park is working the community to make over 20,000 unique pieces of bunting, and throughout May there will be opportunities to make your own bunting at the park’s discovery and exhibition centre based on your place in history.

This could be a significant event in your life, a particular trip you really enjoyed or something that just represents you.

If you’d rather make your piece at home, you can drop it off to the discovery and exhibition centre on your next visit, or send it in for the team to assemble.

The team needs all pieces before 3rd June in time for the Big Jubilee Lunch.

If sewing isn’t your thing, there’s plenty more to get involved in at the lunch with picnics, games, music and more on offer.
