MapWHAT IS YOUR NAME? WHAT IS QUEST? WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE COLOUR?

Adam Crowe, to be part of the worlds largest coconut orchestra , red no blue aahhhhhhhh.
The challenge was set, the Yanks had put on their own coconut orchestra with the current World record of 1,800 people playing their two half coconuts, while conducted simultaneously in one place.
The poms were used to being beaten at their own game, but this is Monty Python!
So with the two Terryís who directed, wrote & starred in The Holy Grail, the cast and Musical Director of Spamalot (the Monty Python musical in the west end) and the Mayor of London, we gathered in Trafalgar Square. They had 5,000 coconuts halves to give out ( the migrant swallows had been busy) and I am happy to say they ran out.
So 5,000 of us armed with our coconuts were conducted to the song ďAlways Look on the Bright Side of LifeĒ. To make the record book the conductor had to stop and start us and keep us together Ėyes there are rules to this sort of thing. Had to be one of the funniest thing Iíve ever done!
Thereís one thing more I love than beating the Pomís itís beating the Yanks!
Afterwards they played the Holy Grail on a large screen, so 5,000 of us sat around Trafalgar Square and watched it.
P.S donít think Iíll be writing again, thatís whatís Loz is for!
