Fancy joining a world record attempt with a difference in Stamford?

Local charity Anna’s Hope is inviting all fairies to help break the World Record for the number of fairies in one place.

The current record is 337.  The event will  take place on Sunday August 19 from 12 noon in Burghley Park  and the official count will be at 2pm. Fairies of any age and sex are invited to  dress up, bring a picnic and put Anna’s Hope and Stamford into the Record Books.

To qualify as a Fairy you need to wear Fairy wings, a tutu or dress and a wand. As an added incentive anyone dressed as a fairy on the day will get half price admission into the Garden of Surprises.

The event is free but they’d love for you to get sponsored and all the money will go towards helping local children and young people with a brain tumour.

Founder of Anna’s Hope and Anna’s mummy, Carole Hughes told ESP – “It would be brilliant if families and friends enter into the fairy spirit, break the world record and picnic together in the beautiful grounds of Burghley Park. It will also be very special as the event will also coincide with what would have been Anna’s 10th birthday.”

All Fairies must register prior to the event by contacting  or by calling 01780 740492.
