What do you get when you mix Guinness and the hokey cokey? Nine times out of ten it’s a mild headache and a fuzzy recollection of an awkward family wedding. This time, you might just end up with a World Record. Ida Barr, the alter ego of Chris Green, will be attempting to lead the world’s largest hokey cokey dance to celebrate the opening of the London Pleasure Gardens at 4pm on Sunday July 1. Ida will be calling upon all festival goers to join the attempt and with the current record standing at 7384 participants, let’s hope she has a good set of lungs on her. The current World Record holders come from America and with this being such a patriotic year, Ida wants to ‘[bring] the World Record home for her Majesty’s Glorious Jubilee Olympic celebrations!’ Get set to put your right arm in… Carly-Ann Clements
