Starlight Parties

Watch out – it’s contagious…

The magic of a Starlight PartyLaughter, that is! At Starlight Parties in hospital wards and hospices across the UK, children’s spirits are lifted with laughter, magic and fun.

Being in hospital can be a scary experience for young patients – and equally hard for brothers, sisters and worried parents too. Starlight Parties, complete with clowns, face painters, party food, decorations, party packs, games and goody bags, create a positive experience for the whole family.

“I can’t decide who enjoyed the Starlight Party the most – children, parents or staff! Everyone said afterwards how much they had needed the laughter.” Play Specialist, following a Starlight Party in her hospital

We’ll provide goody bags, tableware and funds for party expenses such as entertainers, face painters, disco, theatre troupe and food.

Please note that the Starlight Party service will be ending on 30 September 2016 as we replace it with two exciting new services.  Please keep an eye on the website for updates.

If you would like to apply for a party to take place before 30 September 2016, please download the following documents:
