Help the City of Stirling break a Guinness World Record

25 January 2019

The City of Stirling is attempting to break the Guinness World Record of the most nationalities in a drum circle as part of our Harmony Day celebrations and we need your help.

It’s all happening on Friday 15 March between 9am and 11am at The Square Mirrabooka and registrations are open now on the City’s website.

City of Stirling Mayor Mark Irwin said the City had to beat the current record of 61 nationalities, which has been held by a not for profit organisation in Canada since July last year.

“We’re lucky in Stirling because we are one of the most multicultural local governments in Australia, so I am positive we have a really good chance of breaking this record,” Mayor Irwin said.

“But in order to do that, we need as many people of different nationalities possible to register via the City’s website by the first of February.”

To take part, you will need to be able to verify your nationality with a copy of your current, valid passport and be available to attend the event for the duration of the attempt. If there are a high number of responses, participants may be selected by a random ballot.
City Acting Director Community Development Chris Brereton said the Guinness World Record attempt was a great chance to be part of history and help celebrate the City’s cultural diversity.

“This is a great way for us to come together and highlight our diverse community, while showcasing our City to the world,” he said.

“I have been told that a world record is defined as the best global performance ever recorded and officially verified in a specific skill or sport, so I really hope everyone can get behind this and help us make history.”
