When you win a place in the record books, you’re going to be in demand – but sport stacking star James Acraman doesn’t have to travel too far to make a public appearance next week.

James has captured a cupboard full of medals and trophies thanks to his sport stacking skills, as well as appearing on TV to demonstrate his dazzling dexterity.

The 18-year-old North Herts College student from Stevenage is featured in the latest edition of Guinness World Records and he will be signing copies at Letchworth’s David’s Bookshop on Saturday, October 31, from 11am to 12 noon.

As well as being a star of the new sport, James helps schools encourage young people to be more active, and his skills are on show in a video hosted by the NHS Change4Life website which was televised on The Disney Channel during the summer holidays.

He will be giving a demonstration of the sport, as well as signing copies at the free event at the Eastcheap shop.
