Cardiff beats world record for largest Christmas cracker pull

December 10, 2012 No Comments »

Crowds in Cardiff pulled 1,905 crackers, breaking the world record previously set on Japan of 1,478.

It was a cracker of a weekend in Cardiff, as thousands of people gathered in the Bay to set a new world record for cracker pulling.

The event on Saturday night, organised by The Fire Fighters Charity and South Wales Fire and Rescue, saw 1,905 crackers each checked by an official adjudicator.

The Bay was then filled with the noise of almost 2,000 crackers being pulled at the same time – beating the old record of 1,478, set in Japan.

It was part of the three-day Cardiff Waterfront Christmas Market held in Roald Dahl Plass, which featured live music, street theatre, lantern workshops and a visit by Father Christmas.

The Fire Fighters Charity regional organiser for Wales Dougie Bancroft said: “What a way to start the Christmas period. The people of Cardiff and South Wales are brilliant, well done to all.”

The charity is the UK’s leading provider of services that enhance quality of life for serving and retired fire service personnel and their families.
