Strange but true - Spoon Players
The biggest gathering of spoon
players has set the world record. An estimated 345 people played out the pub favourite, "Knees Up Mother Brown", for a panel of adjudicators in Trowbridge, Southwest England last Sunday.
The multitude was
gathered by the amateur street theatre group Stripey-Jumper. "It's been my life's ambition to enter the record books," an excited caterer Sean Price told reporters.
Palmer, one of the magistrates who acted as an independent adjudicator, told us that a letter describing the "largest spoons ensemble" would be sent to the Guinness World Records organisation.
The spoons were played by grasping two spoons between the fingers of one hand. The bowls are to face each other while tapping them against a leg.
"Proper grip is most important for spoon playing," according to the website www.spoonplayer.com. "Much practice is required to reduce the chance of embarrassment that can result from a spoon gone awry or horror
of horrors - a spoon dropped."
