Who doesn’t like jam tarts?
A bid to break world records for the largest number of people eating jam tarts and the biggest game of hide and seek is being held at Wicksteed Park on National Playday, Wednesday, August 6.
The free event will encourage families to get out and enjoy the fresh air in the 147-acre country park and will feature a host of traditional fun activities and games, such as croquet, hat making and a dressing up tent.
Children are being encouraged to dress up as their favourite Alice in Wonderland character for a giant Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in a bid to break the world record for the largest number of people eating jam tarts simultaneously, currently 2,370.
And park mascot Wicky Bear will be leading the search as Alice and the white rabbit are “It” in an attempt to break the record for the largest game of hide and seek, which stands at 1,240 participants.
