Trafalgar Square
London, England WC2n

To coincide with St George’s Day, cast members from the hit musical Monty Python’s SPAMALOT along with the general public will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Coconut Orchestra.

The SPAMALOT team will teach members of the public how to ‘clip-clop’ in time to the Python classic Always Look on the Bright Side of Life prior to the record breaking attempt which will take place in Trafalgar Square at 7pm.

To be assured a pair of exclusive Monty Python’s SPAMALOT coconuts and possibly a place in the history books, you will need to have registered at one of a number of check points in Trafalgar Square
by 6.30pm.

The Guinness World Record for the largest number of people gathered in one location playing coconuts at the same time currently stands at 1789. This record was set on 22 March 2006 outside the Shubert Theatre in New York, to celebrate the one year anniversary of the Broadway production of Monty Python’s SPAMALOT.

This record breaking attempt will be part of a weekend of free activities organised by the Mayor of London. It will be followed by a special screening of Monty Python and the Holy Grail in Trafalgar Square at 7.30pm.
