The announcement by Ladies in Beef was made at the Bath & West Show. Co-founder Minette Batters said: “Ladies in Beef have always been passionate about British beef and this is a great way of showing what a fantastic product we have.

“Thanks to securing a main sponsor in Asda, and thanks to the Royal Bath and West of England Society agreeing to host the event, the attempt to break the Guinness World Record® will take place at the Bath & West showground near Shepton Mallet in Somerset on Thursday 10 thOctober.

Asda’s agriculture manager Pearce Hughes said: “Agriculture has been through a tough year as a result of the weather, and farmers have been very worried about things like feed costs and forage. This is something positive we can all get behind.”

Ladies in Beef co-founder Jilly Greed said: “We hope that as many people as possible will buy tickets to join in the fun. Attempting to break the world record is a great way of giving something back to the industry we love and make a real difference to help farming families in financial difficulty.”
The current Guinness World Record® for the most people eating a roast dinner simultaneously was set by the East of England Agricultural Society at the East of England showground on 22nd February 2009, when 1,632 people took part.
