Blackpool’s Back World Record Selfie Attempt

Who wants to be a World Record Breaker?

If you want to give it a go, and are a dab hand at taking a selfie then we need your help.

On Sunday 30th August 2015 we want to break the record for the Longest Selfie Relay Chain.

As a big thanks for your help you will get TWO tickets to one of the Merlin attractions in Blackpool, just for taking part.

All you need to do is register by clicking the link below, arrive at Comedy Carpet at 8.30am, and stand in line and be ready to take a selfie starting at 9am. Devices will be provided on the day.

Comedy Carpet is located on The Tower Festival Headland, opposite the Blackpool Tower – please note that if you are travelling by car we suggest you aim to use Central Car Park. A map detailing car parks available in Blackpool can be viewed at

If you are travelling by train to Blackpool North, the arena is a 10-minute walk from the station, just head towards the Promenade and the arena is to the left of North Pier.

Easy right? Now here are the technical bits… Each selfie must have two people in with their heads, neck and part of the arm holding the camera in view. Like all good selfies they mustn’t be blurry or out of focus. You have 60 seconds to get it right…plenty of time! And finally, the selfies need to be taken consecutively, not all at once.


See you there!
