No special skills or experience are needed to be a torch wader - you just need to be willing to stand in the sea on the 28th July - holding a torch!

Battle for the Winds co-artistic director Jon Beedell said: "This really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity - it will create an iconic and potentially record-breaking image that will last forever and celebrate the local community."
