New Carol Singing World Record Set

More than 17,000 carollers joined forces on Sunday to set a new carol singing world record.

They smashed the existing Guinness World Carol Singing Record of 15,000 singers set by Disney in 2009.

The succuessful attempt was staged by Premier Christian Radio and sponsored by BibleLands, with 17,117 people taking part at venues across the UK and even in Geneva, Switzerland.

The 15-minute programme of carols included such classics as Silent Night, O Come All Ye Faithful, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Hark The Herald Angels Sing, and Away in a Manger.

Peter Kerridge, CEO of Premier Christian Radio, said: “It’s inspiring to see so many people across the whole of the UK get on board for this record breaking attempt.

“It’s been a lot of fun, and has brought people out to celebrate and really be a part of the spirit of Christmas.

“As far as we can tell with these initial figures, we’ve broken the record! We hope to get the rubber stamp from Guinness in the next few months.”

The Guinness World Record attempt is part of the national ‘Christmas Starts With Christ’ campaign, which aims to engage people with the true meaning of Christmas.
