Thousands of schoolchildren will be attempting to set the title for the largest game of musical bumps for Red Nose Day.

More than 60 primary schools across Oxfordshire will be playing the children’s party game across multiple venues on Friday.

An official Guinness World Records adjudicator will be present at one school venue, with witnesses and stewards collating evidence at all other schools.

Layla Moran, a former children’s party host and the current Liberal Democrat MP for Oxford West and Abingdon, will also visit one of the schools taking part, while the Mayor of Witney will also be involved in the challenge too.

Craig Glenday, Editor in Chief of Guinness World Records, said: “This is a phenomenally fun record! The adjudicator, witnesses and stewards will have their work cut out monitoring the bumps amid the organised chaos in the schools. Well done to BBC Oxford for proposing the event and helping to raise the vital funds for Comic Relief.” 

Altrincham Grammar School for Girls in Cheshire broke the single venue title for the Largest Game of Musical Bumps in September 2019, when 1,276 staff and pupils took part in the children’s game.
