The Oracle to reattempt PJ Party world record at student event

 The Oracle is excited to announce that it will be reattempting to break the world record for the ‘Largest Gathering of People Wearing Pyjamas’ at its bi-annual Student Sessions event on 7 October from 20:30 – 23:30.

Following an attempt earlier this year at the centre’s May Student Sessions, where the crowd narrowly missed out on a claim, The Oracle is hoping for success on its second go at the Guinness World Record – which currently stands at 752.

With thousands of bargain hunting scholars expected to turn up to the event, The Oracle is encouraging all attendees to don their bed-threads for the ultimate shopping night in, whilst they attempt to break the record and crown Reading the ‘PJ Party Capital of the world’.

To add to the excitement, the first 50 students to queue at the entrance for the event in their PJ’s will also be automatically entered into a Golden Ticket ‘Supermarket Sweep’ competition, which will see one lucky academic winning an all-you-can-grab trolley dash within one of The Oracle’s stores.

Sam French, Marketing Manager at The Oracle said,

It was a real shame to miss out at our last attempt at the PJ Party world record, but rather than give up we’ve decided to have another go and hope our students will join forces to make sure we’re crowned Guinness World Record holders this October!
