The London Business School’s annual cultural festival TATTOO recently played host to an inspiring record attempt for the Most nationalities in a simultaneous popular music sing-along, earning the title with a grand total of 72 different countries represented.
The event is aimed at celebrating the school’s diverse community, so the group chose to sing the thematically-appropriate ‘Imagine’ by John Lennon.
The performance lasted for over three minutes, as required by the Guinness World Records guidelines with 224 people in total taking part.
Official Guinness World Records adjudicator Glenn Pollard attended the festival to ensure that all of the participants brought their passports to prove their nationality and signed the registration sheet, in order to be counted into the final total.
Tarana Shivdasani, Social Affairs Officer, Student Association, London Business School, said: “Our Guinness World Records title showcases the diversity of the London Business School community and our communal spirit; we are truly privileged to be members of a community that inspires all of us to be ambitious and push boundaries.”
Participants came from a huge range of countries, including Australia, Canada, Germany, India, Japan, Spain, the UK and the USA - to name just a few - with everyone taking part invited to wear traditional clothes from their home countries.
