New winter experiences

Frosty 5K zones
To get everyone in the winter spirit, the run will start with a snow flurry and participants will run through:

  •  The Icy Igloo Zone – Feel the temperature drop: Runners will enter this amazing 8m inflatable igloo fitted with masses of icicle lights, inside and out.
  • The Fog Zone – Catch your breath: Find your way through this mysterious 6 metre tunnel of winter fog.
  • The Fire Zone – Feel the heat: You will run through an area with simulated flames shooting skywards to the sounds of a real crackling fire.
  • Snow Zone – Wave to the snowmen: Enjoy 15 metres of fun inflatable snowmen and snowwomen.

A whole day of festive fun for families

Enjoy lots of activities in our Event Village - have your photo taken in a snow globe, have your face (or beard) glitter painted and enjoy a luxury hot chocolate and a crepe. Young children can enjoy a ride on a Victorian swingboat or chair-o-plane. You can even pre-book a session at our outdoor ice rink.

The event village is open from 10am-3pm and there will be other activities such as ice skating and vintage fairground rides, whilst enjoying the food stalls. 

You will be helping children like Hannah this Christmas


Taking part in the Frosty 5K will help triplets like Hannah, who has cerebral palsy and other life-shortening conditions. It will ensure every child who visits us in December has a magical Christmas.

Coming to Helen & Douglas House makes a massive difference to us. The girls love it here and we really manage to have some good quality family time. At Christmas time at the hospice the girls have been introduced to reindeer, visited Santa and even met some beautiful pantomime princesses. It was all very magical.’ Carolina, the Hannah’ Mummy
