Starlight Walk is back for 2023 - East Cheshire Hospice

Starlight Walk is back for 2023

Spring will soon be in the air which means the countdown is under way for the Starlight Walk.

The popular event, organised by East Cheshire Hospice, is back at Capesthorne Hall this year.

It will be staged on Thursday, April 27, at 6 pm in the picturesque grounds of the estate. The walk starts at 7 pm.

It is four years since Capesthorne last staged the walk in memory of loved ones. The event was at Adlington Hall last year after a Covid break.

Walkers at Adlington Hall in 2022.

An Early Bird offer of £17.50 for adults and £12.50 for children (up to 16) is available before February 23. Prices are then £20 and £15.

The dusk-time woodland walk, sponsored by Ford dealers Sidney Jackson, is over a 2.5km loop featuring atmospheric lighting and fire pits.

Walkers can complete the course multiple times. The last set off time is 8.30 pm, with the event closing at 10 pm.

The walk the last time it was held at Capesthorne Hall in 2019.

Entry only covers the event cost, so organisers are asking walkers to raise at least £50 in sponsorship, or make a £50 donation to the Hospice when registering.

Events Manager Beth Candy said: “Walkers are encouraged to raise funds for the Hospice to help fund the care of patients both now and in the future.

“We’ll have live entertainment, food and drink stalls including alcohol, and each walker receives a wooden medal. The whole family is welcome to this moving and uplifting evening of remembrance.”

Registration is now open via the Hospice website.
