Fairies turned up in their hundreds to Burghley Park on Sunday August 19th to break the World Record for the most number of people dressed as fairies in one place. 786 fairies dressed in tutus, wings and waving wands should break the previous record of 277, once verified by Guinness World Records.
The event was organised by Stamford based children’s brain tumour charity, Anna’s Hope.
‘We were delighted to see so many fairies turn up and help us break the record,’ said Carole Hughes, founder of Anna’s Hope. ‘We had every type of fairy you could imagine, from baby fairies to grandad fairies. We even had a Sugar Plum fairy and a Sumo fairy! It was a wonderful event that coincided with what has been Anna’s 10th birthday. Carole went on to thank all the fairies that helped break the world record, Burghley Park for helping stage the event, and all the volunteers.
