Camp Bestival World Record

Camp Bestival Dorset has announced a major call out for festival goers to join a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title attempt for the Largest Disco Dance at the Dorset Jamboree this summer.

Tying in with this year’s Desert Island Disco theme at Camp Bestival Dorset and taking place on Saturday 30 July, the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title attempt will bring unprecedented excitement and the best disco moves to Lulworth Castle.

Breaking world records is no mean feat and in true Camp Bestival style the festival is determined to give as many Camp Bestival go-ers as possible the chance to become record breakers!

More than 324 people will be needed to break the current GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title. Not only will families become ACTUAL record breakers, but the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title attempt will also raise much needed funds for Camp Bestival’s official charity partner, the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust.

Teased on the Camp Bestival social channels this week, the dance is led by Diverse City founder and disco champion, Claire Hodgson MBE, and choreographed by fellow disco champion and brother, Tom Hodgson. Claire was awarded an MBE in 2016 for services to inclusion in the Performing Arts and continues to be an inspiration to many with her dedication to all things disco. Aspiring record breakers are encouraged to sign-up early due to limited availability!

The Largest Disco Dance will encourage everyone and anyone to take part, with all abilities welcome. The festival jamboree will also raise money for Camp Bestival’s official charity partner, the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, which inspires young people aged 8-24 to believe in a brighter future living through and beyond cancer.

Lindsay Nehorai, Fundraising Manager, Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust said: “We’re so grateful to be back at Camp Bestival again. It’s been great fun working with the team on the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title attempt and we’re so excited about seeing everyone together on site trying to set the new record. It’s such an innovative and fun fundraising idea, and every sign-up will help the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust inspire more young people to believe in a brighter future living through and beyond cancer, both this summer and into the future. Thank you!”

To take part in the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title attempt for the Largest Disco Dance and to be in with the chance of being a record breaker, disco dancers need to sign-up and register before Camp Bestival Dorset here.
