KidsCan Can Can World Record Attempt

The team here at Hive love to get involved with helping local charities, from participating in events such as the Great North Run to raise money, to giving support to the charity, by dedicating planning and creative time.

For the past two years we have been very proud to be supporting local charity KidsCan Cancer Research Centre, who we have worked closely with to develop their marketing.

When we first met KidsCan their supporter numbers were growing but they were looking for a fundraising idea that was a bit different; would inspire people of all ages to get involved; and would help raise their profile regionally and nationally.

Our response was the KidsCan Can Can Guinness World Record attempt. We wanted to reinforce the name KidsCan and the positivity of ‘can’.

Now after two years of planning we are extremely happy to announce that the KidsCan Can Can event will be taking place on the 1st July at Event City, just opposite the Trafford Centre.

We are looking for energetic people of all ages to continuously ‘Can Can’ dance for 5 minutes. The current record stands at 1503 people and we are determined to set a new record in Manchester.

The day will be a fun filled, high-spirited event with live entertainment, indoor fairground rides, face painting and photo opportunities, amongst other carnival activities.

KidsCan are celebrating their 10th anniversary this year and what better way to celebrate such a vital local charity than to slip on a tu tu and join in with the high kicking at Event City on Sunday July 1st at 12 noon!

We produced a microsite for the team to promote the Can Can event and to make it easy to sign up. For more details please visit: and for more information on the charity please visit:
