The world record for the largest gathering of people dressed in Regency costumes was achieved by 409 participants, for the Jane Austen Festival in Bath, UK, on 19 September 2009
The previous world record stood at 200 people and on a beautiful sunny day in September last year, 409 of us got together in Bath Assembly Rooms and broke the world record.
Our photo shows a small section of the assembled promenaders in the ballroom at the Assembly Rooms. The event also raised money for the charity Breakthrough Breastcancer which benefited from the ticket sales.
A very big thank-you to everyone who took part and helped to break the record and
Welcome to the very select club of Guinness World RecordsTM holders
