About the event

Taking part is as easy as 1, 2, 3... Spot it, snap it, record it!

Taking place over 24 hours, you can participate for as long as you like - whether that’s 20 minutes or several hours. The Count begins at midday on Saturday, and runs right through the night to finish at midday on the Sunday.

It doesn’t matter whether you live in a flat, a back-to-back, or a house with a garden, you can count wherever you are.  No special knowledge or skills are required - we’ll provide you with a toolkit of everything you need to make it easy and fun.
