Johnny Strange celebrated International Sword Swallowers Day 2016 at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! in Blackpool this year.

Sword Swallowers Day is one day every year where sword swallowers from around the world gather at Ripley’s Believe it or not! museums to demonstrate the art of sword swallowing.


He demonstrated the ancient and deadly art of sword swallowing for spectators throughout  the day before wowing the audience by attempted to set his ninth, and so far possibly his most dangerous, Guinness World Record to date. He managed to swallow a stainless steel blade measuring a phenomenal 61cm long, just over 2 feet in length, to the bottom of his stomach.
