They were trying to break the Guinness World Record for the greatest number of people performing the same tap routine at multiple venues simultaneously - with the current record being at 7956 people.

Unfortunately, they were short by just 233 people, but across the country £36,000 was raised for Children in Need in the endevour.

The event was for ages from as young as three-and-a-half to the club’s adult dancers, where they performed the routine to Uptown Funk at precisely 1pm on the day.

It was led by tap teacher Miss Donna Park.
