Be part of our National Lottery 25th celebration & record breaking attempt

4 Oct 2019 01:43 PM

Join us in Newcastle as we celebrate the National Lottery’s 25th Birthday with tea and scones, and attempt to set a new (Guinness World Records™) for the largest ever cream tea party.

We need 1,500 guests to come along to enjoy a free cream tea – including a cup of tea, a scone with jam and clotted cream - on Wednesday 23 October 2019 at the Sage Gateshead.

To beat the record, everyone taking part must be able to drink a cup of tea with milk and eat at least one wheat scone with clotted cream and jam.

To allow us to provide enough scones and tea - and set a new world record - all guests must register for a place at the table and ensure they can attend the event.

Sound like a piece of cake? Hit the button below for full details and register!

What: Celebrate The National Lottery at our Cream Tea Party
Where: Sage Gateshead, St Mary's Square, Gateshead Quays, Gateshead NE8 2JR
