Once upon a time there was a world record attempt for the largest bedtime story…
Hundreds of people will be taking part in an official Guinness World Record attempt at the inaugural Pembrokeshire Children’s Book Festival at Bluestone National Park Resort, near Narberth this October.
Organiser’s are hoping as many people as possible will join in the attempt on Wednesday, 30th October – the first day of the book festival - with adults and children reading a chapter from a bedtime story.
Guinness World Records will validate the record attempt which will see guests staying at the luxury short break holiday destination take part in the challenge as part of the book festival.
“Children and adults love reading bedtime stories and we thought that as we’ll have so many families staying during the October half-term for the book festival we should try and do something unique and engaging,” said Pamela Joseph, Commercial Director at Bluestone.
“The record will be established if enough people record that they have attempted the challenge and will enter the record books as a brand new Guinness World Record.”

Bluestone National Park Resort
Bluestone is a luxury short-break holiday destination situated in the spectacular Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in West Wales with a strong sustainable and environmental ethos.
Opened in July 2008, Bluestone sits within 500 acres of countryside and woods near Narberth and close to the coastal town of Tenby. It comprises nearly 300 luxury timber lodges, cottages and studio apartments surrounding a private village.
Among its attractions are the Blue Lagoon water park and Adventure Centre, which are open to day visitors, the award-winning Well Spa and its thermal and treatment rooms, the Steep Ravine with high ropes and zip wire and the Tournamnent Field, with everything from a giant catapult to archery and crossbow action.
Bluestone offers a wide range of activities for all ages and abilities, including archery, laser clay-shooting, bushcraft, a high ropes course, Woodland Warriors laser combat game, and a breathtaking nature trail.
Environmental responsibility is central to the Bluestone ethos and shapes every aspect of it. From the use of natural, sustainable materials wherever possible, to solar-heated water in the lodges, and a unique biomass energy centre which provides carbon-neutral heat for Blue Lagoon and the Adventure Centre.
In 2012 and 2013, Bluestone was accredited with Level Five of the prestigious Welsh Government-backed Green Dragon Award for its environmental work on a day-to-day basis.
