The World's Largest Hide & Seek

Once again, Cambridgeshire Search and Rescue are inviting everyone to help us break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Game of Hide and Seek, to have a fun day out and help raise money for your local search team.

When: Saturday 15th July 2017

Registration gates will be open between 10:00 and 12:30 letting people into the play area with entertainment and stalls. The record attempt will run between 13:00 and 14:00. The official rules require the game is played for the minimum of one hour. Anyone leaving early is discounted from the total.

Where: Milton Country Park

Located just north of Cambridge, Milton Country Park is 95 acres of beautiful parkland who are again hosting us for the record attempt.

Registration and Entry

Registration to the event is by donation. We recommend a £2 donation per person. When you register at the park you will be given a barcoded wristband that can be used to scan in and out of the play area. The barcode must be scanned in and out by officials. People coming in will have priority and you must be scanned in by 12:30 when gates close for the safety briefing and official count.

The World Record

The current world record for the Largest Game of Hide and Seek is 1437 people playing. We need your help to break the record this year. Join in, bring your family and friends and help promote the event on social media and around your local area.

As this is an official Guinness World Record attempt all players should read the rules available on our website although they will be explained before the game.

The Play Area: Food and Entertainment 

There will be stalls from our emergency services friends as well as other activities such as face painting, beat the goalie and other diversions. Our search dog Shadow will be back again and will be looking forward to meeting you. Food will be available to buy on-site including in the play area but you may want to bring a picnic. There will be a treasure hunt available throughout the day and prizes for the best fancy dress costumes!
