Hopscotch to Victory: The Film
401 people joined Live Art Collective East in Colchester Castle Park on 30 June 2012 in an attempt to break the world record for the most people playing hopscotch in the same place at the same time. Egged on by TV Presenter Gareth “Gaz Top” Jones, the people of Colchester hopped, stepped and jumped their way to victory in a mass celebration of momentarily leaving the ground beneath their feet. Did we break the record? We’ll have to wait and see!
