The eighth annual Guinness World Records Day will be taking place this Thursday.

The annual event sees thousands of people all over the world attempt to secure a world record title during a 24-hour period.

Any records set on Guinness World Records day are short-listed for inclusion in next year’s edition of the book.

And we want to know if you are planning your own record-breaking event in Norfolk.

Leading the way in the UK, at the iconic Potters Field overlooking Tower Bridge, Dani Maynard, from East Sussex, and her intrepid team will be attempting to break their existing record by squeezing 28 limber ladies into a Mini Cooper, all in aid of charity Children in Need.

Bologna, Italy, is hoping to become the proud home to the Largest Chocolate Coin, while in the United States, they are taking the pogo stick to the extreme attempting to reach new heights, literally, for the Most Pogo Stick Jumps in One Minute to Highest Forward Flip Pogo Stick Jump.

India will put forward a display of national culture with Largest Kaikottikali Dance (more than 2,000 participants) in Mumbai and Australia’s national pride is on the line as 15-year-old Lachlan Phelps attempts to hold the Longest Note On A Didgeridoo in Hunter Valley.
