Starlight Parties


Watch out – it’s contagious…

The magic of a Starlight Party

Laughter, that is! At Starlight Parties in hospital wards and hospices across the UK, children’s spirits were 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, created 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.”
