ANYONE wishing to join in Frome’s World Record attempt for the largest gathering of people dressed as Wizard of Oz characters can now register online for free. 

Registration is now available online as well as in paper form after an online service was launched last week.

Frome’s Guinness World Record attempt will take place on Sunday 13th July as part of the Frome Festival as participants will have a chance to help create Frome’s own Yellow Brick Road and break the record of 446 people dressed as characters from the Wizard of Oz.

Those wishing to take part are being urged to sign up quickly. Organiser Martyn Payne said, “It is great that people can now register online and it is very easy and quick to do so. On top of that, it is free to register online but we do ask for a suggested donation of £1 on the day.

“We need people to sign up early so we can have an idea of numbers on the day – so come on Frome, help us break a world record!”
