Eastbourne to attempt world record of most Christmas angels in one place
and live on Freeview channel 276
Angels have been asked to meet in the Beacon at the former Dorothy Perkins store at 2pm – all you need to join in is a white outfit and ideally some wings and a halo.
Your Eastbourne BID Chief Executive Stephen Holt said: “I’m confident that Eastbourne’s angels can beat the Canadian record set back in 2015.
“We won’t just be attempting to set a world record, we will also be showing off the very best of the town’s festive shopping, lights and atmosphere in the run-up to Christmas.
“We welcome everyone to come along and join in the record-breaking attempt.
“One lucky angel will also be picked at random to win a family ticket to enjoy the Lightning Fibre ice rink.”
After the angels meet at the Beacon, there will be a head count to verify numbers, followed by a parade which ends in Terminus Road’s Christmas Market, where an official announcement will be made, revealing whether the town has set a new record.
There will be free cardboard and other art materials for children to get creative on Saturday, December 9 and Sunday, December 10,
