Childline Rocks Presents Strum A Chord For A Good Cause

On October 14th at Coventry's famed Ricoh Arena, 2500 guitarists of all types, genres and ages will gather together to attempt to break four world records:

1. The Largest Electric Guitar Ensemble
2. The Largest Music Lesson
3. The Largest Air Guitar Ensemble
4. The Most Guitar Amplifiers Used Simultaneously

In addition to the four Guinness World Record attempts there will be a host of Guest Star appearances throughout the afternoon - details to be announced shortly. A competition for the fastest guitarist in the house will take place and three unsigned bands will kick off the proceedings at 1:00pm (doors open at Midday).

The entry fee covers admission for the player PLUS a non-playing guest and also contributes to the cost of a Marshall MS2 guitar amp (rrp £26) which all players can take home with them. Sponsors include Yamaha who are hosting the world’s biggest music lesson led by ace guitarist Soren Andersen, Marshall Amps and Classic Rock magazine.

October 14th is a Sunday so perfect for parents and aspiring rock offspring to riff and break a record or three for the very best of causes in the very best of company. What could be better than getting down 'n' dirty with peers, stars, family and mates - and all for children who are at risk… A good cause and a fab day out….Childline Rocks ROCKS!

This event is being staged in support of ChildLine, the charity that is a lifeline for vulnerable children. The fundraising target for the day is £250,000.

**Electric guitars only. No additional amplifiers. Please bring in soft cases with own short guitar leads.
