If your nose is growing to Pinocchio-like proportions, then fib your way over to Cumbria this November for your chance to be crowned the World’s Biggest Liar.
Contestants at the annual contest have five minutes to tell the biggest and most convincing lie they can think of. The winner is then picked by a panel of judges.
The origins of the event lie back in the 19th century when former publican Will Ritson is said to have entertained his customers with tall tales about turnips big enough to house a sheep.
Entry is open to all amateur liars (politicians and lawyers excluded) who fancy themselves as masters of deception.
