Nearly 1,200 people have already signed up for the city’s latest record breaking event.

Children in Crossfire want 2,013 dancers to come together at 12 noon on Sunday, August 18 at Ebrington Square and perform a light jig for six minutes to bring the Riverdance World Record to Derry.

The organisers have a stall outside Browns in the Town, Strand Road, all this week from 10am-10pm where people can register.
