Jokers' Masquerade Fancy Dress is up for another challenge and this time it is taking on the skeletons for Halloween. On Saturday 8th October, Newbury's Jokers' Masquerade will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of skeletons in one place at the Swansea University Students Union.

The record currently stands at 197 skeletons, set by the Paul O'Grady Show in 2009. Jokers' Masquerade is confident it will smash the record with over 2,500 tickets sold for this huge event already.

American rock group Wheatus is performing and popular Radio 1 DJ, Matt Edmondson will be at the decks luring the skeletons on to the dance floor.

Jokers' Masquerade fancy dress currently holds the record for the largest gathering of smurfs, which stands strong at 2,510, and as Halloween is looming, Halloween costumes are the perfect idea for the 2011 record attempt.
