Guinness World Records™ endorse record number of witches attempt!
A HUGE Charity event planned to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the Pendle Witch Trials in August is set to break a world record for the biggest ever gathering of “witches”!
Pendle Witch Walk, taking place on August 18th – the exact date of the infamous trials - has been approved by Guinness World Records™ as an official world record attempt. And with over 2,000 attendees expected in witch-themed fancy dress, organisers are confident that they’ll claim the record!
The event itself is a 5-mile circular sponsored walk from the beautiful Lancashire village of Barley – the epicentre of so-called Lancashire Witch Country!
The walk will take in the summit of Pendle Hill – which in itself is emblematic of both Lancashire and witchcraft, as well as being a site of reverence for both Pagans and Quakers!
