Wakefield Church's Guinness World Record for carol singing

A Wakefield Church will take part in a Guinness World Record for carol singing today.

St Catherine's Church Wakefield will sing with other congregations in a nationwide attempt to smash the Guinness World Record for the largest number of Christmas carol singers singing at the same time.

Anyone from the local community can join in the carol singing attempt tonight - they need to arrive by 6.30pm.

The current record was set last year when churches across the UK and abroad attracted a total of 18,114 carol singers to sing five classic carols in unison - beating the previous record of 14,100 established by Disney in 2009.
