But their ranks will also be swelled by the local lifeboat crew, joining the session after their Sunday morning training.

The event sees members of Marlene's School of Dancing getting involved with an annual Tapathon at 1pm at the Pavilion Theatre.

It is organised by The Performers Project, which is calling on tap dancers of all ages and skills to take part at 200 venues across the country.

The aim is to get as many people as possible dancing at the same time to the Pharrell Williams son Happy. The target is 7,596 to get the record.

Marlene Duniam who runs the school welcomed the addition of the lifeboat crew - who have insisted they are hidden away in the back row.
