White Sheet Ghost - Thomas Mansbridge

Guinness World Record attempt for largest gathering of people dressed as ghosts

  • World record attempt in Platt Field Park for largest gathering of people in ghost costumes
  • Previous record held by Mercy School Mounthawk in Tralee, Ireland
  • People taking part being told to wear white sheet covering body with two eye holes.

Platt Fields Park in Fallowfield is hosting a Guinness World Record attempt for the largest gathering of people dressed as ghosts this weekend.

It takes place on Saturday (29 October) and numbers of people will be counted at midday.

The event is being held to raise money for The Greyhound Gap a charity which rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes greyhounds.

People taking part in the record attempt are being told to wear an ankle-length large white sheet entirely covering the participant’s body, with two eye holes. Costumes must be worn throughout the entirety of the six-minute allocated time to be included in the attempt.

The current world record is held by Mercy School Mounthawk in Tralee, Ireland who gathered 560 people dressed as white sheet ghosts back in 2017.

The organisers say that the event will be: “fun, easy to perform, it will take place no matter the weather, and completely inclusive so every member of the family of virtually all ages can participate.”

Tickets are free and can be purchased from Eventbrite here.
