You may remember that we attended the very first Guinness World Records Blogger event in October 2011. (part 1 - part 2). It was a truly amazing day and we were so disappointed that, due to hospital appointments and travel plans, we were unable to attend last years event. Thankfully Guinness World Records still made Katie & Joseph smile by sending us a copy of the 2013 book - which has a very cool augmented reality app.
However, we have just been invited to attend a new live stage show! I know!! Exciting stuff or what? Here is a swift taster as to what the show offers...
** ** ** **
Audiences will attempt official Guinness World Records and someone will become a Record Adjudicator for the evening!
The show will be packed with science facts and record-breaking information taking each audience on a scientific journey of exploration and lifting the lid on the world we live in.
How has the human body changed over time?
How long can someone defy gravity?
Where is the UK’s loudest audience?
This interactive science extravaganza is the perfect event for the family to enjoy together. (this has Joseph practially hopping with excitement!)
Audience members will be given an opportunity to attempt world records including the Loudest Scream and the Fastest Time to Duct Tape Yourself to a Wall, and one lucky audience member will be given the opportunity to join an official from Guinness World Records on stage to adjudicate.

As science is more Joseph's area of interest, I'm hoping seeing the live show will grab Katie's attention and give her an insight into the 'fun' side of science.
Anyway, calming down slightly I can now share with you the promotional video - click on the picture below...
I will finish with a quote from Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief Craig Glenday :
"Science touches on every aspect of record-breaking, from the physics of juggling to the chemistry of a soda fountain, which means that Guinness World Records Officially Amazing Science Live! is the perfect way to find the silly, super and sensational side of science!”
