JUBILEE Gardens in Ely has been chosen as one of the venues for a Saturday night prime-time BBC television programme, presented by Bruce Forsyth.
Dancing in the Street is a major BBC entertainment show - the latest spin-off of the Strictly... series of dance programmes - that will take record-breaking dance feats as its theme.
A Big Dance Class segment, hosted by BBC Local Radio, will be filmed at Jubilee Gardens and will give ordinary members of the public the opportunity to take part in a Guinness world record attempt on Saturday, July 22, when a compiled CD will be played as groups around the country attempt to set the world record for the biggest dance class.
The target is to get 80,000 people dancing at the same time.
Tracey Harding at East Cambridgeshire District Council, said: "It is fantastic news that Jubilee Gardens has been chosen as the host venue for the entire Cambridgeshire region.
"Once again, Ely has been chosen as a premier media location by film and television companies."
