The event will take place at multiple venues across the country, including school halls, community centres and town centres. This year’s Tapathon organizers are calling for your support to arrange your own event and take part in this record breaking attempt.

The organizer and Director of the Performers Project, Joanne Greenhalgh, has choreographed the tap dance routine with the support of BBC Children in Need. The dancers will tap away to one of the UK’s biggest selling singles, ‘Out of our Heads’ by Take That.
