Keeping up with the Joneses

Date 3 Nov 2006

Joneses from around the globe headed to Cardiff today to set a new world record. The Welsh bid hopes to attract up to 2,000 Joneses to a show where they will be entertained by singers and dancers, all called Jones, including former Bond actress Grace Jones.

The current Guinness World Record for a gathering of people with the same name is 583 Norbergs in Sweden. Dylan Hughes, the noticeably-not-called-Jones organiser of the Jonesathon, said: "We are hoping to consign the Norbergs to the dustbin of world record history."
