Kingsbridge on Track for World’s Smallest Disco

The South Devon town of Kingsbridge could be making its way into the book of  Guinness World Records thanks to a novel proposal.

A traditional red phone box at the top of the town’s Fore Street could be about to undergo a transformation from disused payphone booth to a standing room only discotheque complete with glitterball, strobe lighting and sound system.


The idea was dreamed up by town mayor, Chris Povey, who sees the ‘one-in one-out’ venue as a potentially great, albeit slightly “daft”, advert for Kingsbridge.

The current world record is held by a dinky mobile disco/shed in Rotherham called Club 28 which has a maximum capacity of seven (including resident club DJ).

Kingsbridge looks all set to steal away the accolade with its very own three-foot square nano-nightspot.

The idea, already the talk of the town, looks likely to receive the full backing of the town council, with work only able to start once BT have cut the existing phone line.

Entry into the Kingsbridge phone box disco is likely to be free, however, if there is an admission fee you might well be able to reverse the charges?

However, reveller(s) will have to remain on best behaviour as the iconic kiosk is sited on the pavement outside the town’s police station.
