Dance music organisation Silky Productions are currently looking for eleven dancers for a Guinness World Record attempt for the worlds’ longest Conga on Friday 28th July 2017, Conga dancing along Blackpool Promenade to the Camp of New Hope on Preston New Road!
The proposed World Record Attempt is scheduled to take place on the morning of Friday 28th July 2017 as part of the Lancashire Carnivale, a day of carnival-style events on The Fylde in Lancashire to raise awareness of the threat of the fracking industry to Lancastrians
The current world record is 7.84 miles on 19th May 2016 in Brighton, therefore an 8 mile Conga dance would smash the record!
The 8 mile Conga is expected to take about 5 hours, the event is planning to start at 10am on the Promenade 3 miles north of Blackpool Tower and the event is being registered with the official Guinness World Records Team
If you are interested in taking part in this event, please contact James Walsh

A team from Manchester set a world record for the Conga in 2015 that was beaten in Brighton in 2016, the Conga is very much a dance associated with the Blackpool entertainment industry so it’s time the world record returned to the North!
