Westenra live at Whitby Abbey
May 26 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Join us for a spooktacular night at the birthplace of Dracula where we will be marking the 125th anniversary of Bram Stoker’s iconic novel by attempting to break the record for the largest gathering of people dressed as vampires!
In partnership with GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™, the official record attempt will take place on the evening of Thursday 26 May 2022 between 6.45pm and 7.15pm.
Entry to the abbey will be FREE for all those in traditional vampire fancy dress and who intend to participate in the world record attempt. The only exceptions to this are an adult accompanying a child in costume or an adult assisting a less able visitor in costume.
In order to be officially counted as a vampire, participants MUST be wearing a full, traditional vampire fancy dress costume:
- Black trousers or dress
- Black shoes
- Black cape or collared overcoat (a different colour on the inside is allowed)
- Fangs on the top set of teeth
The evening will also include live local music, a performance of excerpts from Dracula by Time Will Tell Theatre. Local food and a selection of drinks will also be available. Please click here for more information.
