Yes you heard right – 2015 will see the 33 times Guinness World Record breaker and 47 times Record Holders Republic holder take centre stage at Newport Pagnell Carnival on Saturday 04 July.
John has over two decades’ worth of international head-balancing experience and at 68 years old that is no mean feat! With 27 gorilla tubs, 12 tyres, a 20 foot pole and a Mini Cooper all featuring as part of his act this is something that you do not want to miss.
But we’re not just bringing you a world record holder-Oh no! John will be attempting break a world record live at Newport Pagnell Carnival! Yes, the international performer has chosen Newport Pagnell as the location to break the world record for balancing a 13 foot tower scaffolding…on his head! If successful John will win the international challenge between India, America and the UK and bring home the winning cup.
John said “I am delighted to be performing at Newport Pagnell on 04 July – making history and putting on a performance that people will never forget”.
And if that wasn’t enough, up and coming strongman Simon Plant will also be attending and attempting to break the Record Holders Republic record of pulling a 15 tonne lorry 20 feet…with just one arm!
