Santa to Visit Mary Stevens Hospice Event

Santa will be taking time out of his busy December schedule to drop by at a free weekend of family fun organised in aid of Mary Stevens Hospice. 

On Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December, the Stourbridge based charity will be running a festive weekend which will take over the grounds of the hospice and Mary Stevens Park.

On Saturday, visitors to the hospice will be treated to a coffee morning, an all-day BBQ, live music, and two screenings of a sing-a-long version of Frozen, as well as storytelling and a craft market.

Families who book in advance will also get the opportunity to meet Santa, Prancer, and Rudolph.

On Sunday, the festivities move to Mary Stevens Park, with the hospice’s annual Santa Jog running alongside another free family fun day, which will again include live entertainment, food, and craft stalls, with Santa appearing on stage at 9.15am.

Laura Millard, Mary Stevens Hospice’s community engagement officer, said: “We were delighted that Santa was able to find a gap in his incredibly busy schedule at this time of year to come and see all the children we’ve got coming along on the weekend.

“We know he’s a big supporter of the hospice, however, to commit to making an appearance on both days really is something we’re so grateful [for] – although we know he’s got a proven history of managing a tight timeframe.

“This weekend is going to be so sparkling and so spectacular, and we just hope all of the families coming along on either or both days absolutely love it!”
