There were Roman centurions and soldiers stationed all around the Roman Gallery and Standard Bearers wearing bearskins.
In the Medieval Gallery there was story telling by a man named Mick Sands who also played a lute.
Guinness Book of Records
Next was the gigantic cracker pull. We all stood on grey line which ran all over the museum. The museum was aiming for one thousand people to take part in pulling crackers all at the same time so that they get into the Guinness Book of Records for the most people taking part in a cracker pull.
I saw people wearing numbers 596, 603, 657, 685, 687, 983, 1045 and 1046. So they reached their target. Even some of the Roman soldiers had numbers on.
