The Elf world record gathering attempt set to take place in Bridgend this weekend has already broken one town centre record - the largest number of Elf hats bought in one go.
With interest in the record-breaking attempt soaring, more than 800 hats have been purchased ready for the ‘Elf-steddfod’, which takes place between 12pm-2pm on Saturday 11 December.
Organisers of the event want more than 608 people to meet in the town centre to break the world record, which is currently held by New York City.
To qualify as an Elf, you must turn up in your own costume or just wear something green or red - an Elf hat will be supplied upon entry.
The event will also feature Elves on stilts, acrobatic Elves, a children’s baking marquee and music from Bridge FM. Town centre shops have lent their support to the unique event with the Elf hats purchased by The Travel House and supplied by Logo Toys.
