Largest gathering of people dressed as Harry Potter - Wirksworth Wizarding Day World Record Attempt

Anthony Gell School Sports Field, Derbyshire, DE4 4DX
Sat 26th October 2019
You can be a Guinness World Record holder by taking part in the Wirksworth Wizard Day 2019 attempt to gather the largest number of people dressed as Harry Potter in one place.

The current record is 997 held by a school in Australia. Can you help bring the record back to the UK? Wirksworth Wizard Day’s world record attempt is raising funds for Aquabox, who supply water purification kits to disaster zones. Register online for the world record attempt and you will automatically donate a pound to Aquabox. For more info about Aquabox please visit

All participants for this record had to have a wand, glasses, Hogwarts school uniform and fake scar on forehead.

Please register each place in the name of the person you would like to see appear on the certificate. If you register 5 places in different names, you will receive 5 personalised certificates - one in each of those names. If you register 5 places all in one name, we're afraid that all 5 certificates will have that same name on them.

All registered participants will receive:

Before the attempt you will be emailed
Details about where and when the attempt will be held - including access gates to Anthony Gell School's sports field.
What to wear to make sure you are a record breaker

After the attempt each registrant will be emailed
A certificate to prove you helped make it happen
A group photograph of everyone who attempted the record

Please register an individual place (ticket) for each person attempting the world record in their own name. If you're registering for a family or group, please register for each person individually, by putting their name in the personal details box after you have clicked checkout and have entered your email, post code and house number. This ensures each person receives a personalised certificate with their own name on it rather than the name of the person doing the booking. The certificate and photo will be sent to the email address used to register that person. A single email address can be used for more than one registrant.

We look forward to seeing you there!
