Would you like to celebrate Australia Day this year by becoming a world record holder? And have a lot of fun doing so?
Largest Lagerphone Ensemble
Guinness World Record Attempt - 24th Jan 2015
Berrima Rotary Club is staging GaolBreak - opening up the historic Berrima Gaol to the public - over the Australia Day long weekend. As well as public tours of the gaol, there are two evening events: a bush dance on 24th Jan and an opera concert on 25th Jan.
A highlight of the bush dance will be the setting of an official Guinness World Record for the Largest Lagerphone Ensemble. A lagerphone is a traditional folk percussion instrument, best known in Australia as a broomstick with bottlecaps, though thay can be more elaborate - literally with bells & whistles (and horns).
SHYAC set two Guinness World Records in 2011 for the Largest Umbrella Mosaic and the Largest Umbrella Dance. Local Rotary clubs provided much support for us then and now SHYAC gets a chance to join with them to see the Southern Highlands create another world record.
There are some unofficial world records for lagerphone ensembles but this will be the first official one to be set recognised by Guinness World Records. So just by turning up with a lagerphone you will make history!
A SHYAC choir will be performing with the Kangaroo March Commemorative Choir at 6.30pm just prior to the World Record attempt. So come along and lend your support. Even better, bring your own lagerphone and help us set the official world record.
Tickets for the combined GaolBreak Bush Dance and Lagerphone World Record are just $15 for an adult or $5 for a child. You can book your tickets for the Bush Dance (and the tours and opera concerts) on this website
