Whitby Abbey seeks budding bloodsuckers to break vampire record
English Heritage announce bid to stage world’s largest gathering of people dressed as a vampire at site that inspired Bram Stoker

You will need black shoes, black trousers or skirt, a white shirt, waistcoat and a black cape. Fangs on the upper teeth are compulsory, pallid skin helpful and a murderous demeanour optional.

English Heritage has announced plans to break a world record few knew needed breaking: it wants to stage the world’s largest gathering of people dressed as a vampire.

The setting will be Whitby Abbey, the dramatically atmospheric 13th century gothic abbey that helped inspire Bram Stoker to write the classic novel which this year is 125 years old.

There are criteria for what counts as looking like a vampire and adjudicators will be there to judge whether each person makes the cut.

For some, the cape will be the stumbling block. Who on earth has a cape?

Bye 'eck, I've heard some say Andrew and Harry (and Meghan) are just bloodsuckers but have we all been missing something regarding our monarchy...
