Local Lib Dem Councillor Ben Dowling spent the morning of 15th June 2017 breaking a world record alongside 900 school children and school staff from across Portsmouth.
Ben commented: "It was an absolute pleasure to be part of breaking the world record for largest jembe drumming ensemble this morning! I joined 900 school kids and teachers - easily breaking the previous record of 466. A big well done to all involved and thank you to the Portsmouth Music Hub for organising it and the Portsmouth Guildhall for use of the venue.”
The event was put on as part of the celebrations nationwide for BBC Music Day.
