Clumber Park will be celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with a Clumber Street Party and a world record attempt on 3rd and 4th June.

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 with community groups including nursing homes and schools to make over 20,000 unique pieces of bunting, and throughout May there will be opportunities to make your own bunting at the Discovery and Exhibition Centre at the Park, based on ‘your place in history’.

But 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 asks that all pieces be provided before 3rd June so that a bunting maze can be assembled in the events field in time for the Big Jubilee Lunch. Prizes will be awarded for the best bunting in several categories.

If sewing isn’t your thing, there’s still plenty more to get involved in at the Big Jubilee Lunch with picnics, games, music and much more – there’s something for all the family to enjoy.
