2 Wish Upon A Stars Charity Guinness World Record Attempt
We have been lucky enough to be awarded a community day at the Principality Stadium on Saturday 13th August.
We are attempting a world record of the number of people dressed as elephants in one place and are expecting at least 2000 elephants – which will be the largest community event to be held at the stadium this year.
The attempt has been accepted by Guinness and the planning is now underway.
Gorgeous George is not only our elephant mascot named after my son George but elephants never forget and the topic of child death is often seen as the elephant in the room.
We hope to use this event as a huge awareness raising campaign and will be inviting children from every primary school and youth group across Wales.
Saturday 13th August 2016
Gates open at 2.00pm
The record attempt will commence at 3.00pm.
There will be FREE faceprinting, balloon modelling and bouncy castles for both adults and children. Elephant craft and visits from special guests including our very own Gorgeous George.
The stadium will be opening their refreshments areas for food and drink.
Free tickets for all elephants are available at
MEDALS WILL BE AWARDED TO ALL ELEPHANTS IF THE RECORD IS BROKEN...
Rules for largest Gathering of People Dressed as Elephants
1. All participants must be dressed in a full elephant costume, we suggest a onesie, head to toe including suitable footwear and a headpiece with ears, elephant trunk, tusks and a tail. The headpieces can be a full headpiece, a mask or a hood with ears.
2. Costumes must be clearly recognisable as elephants at the discretion of the independent witnesses and Guinness World Records. Any deemed unsuitable will not be included in the final total.
It is crucial these rules are adheared to as Guinessse reserves the right that if 10% of the total number of participants are incorrectly dressed that the entire attempt will be disqualified.
Elephant's under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult elephant. (Three under 12's to one adult.) More adults the merrier so if coming along please dress up to help us smash this record.
Costumes can be purchased or made. Here are a couple of examples where Elephant Costumes and Elephant items can be bought.
