Midnight Walk Weekend Back by Popular Demand

Midnight Walk 2024

Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity has brought back its Midnight Walk event as part of the Hospice’s 35th anniversary, which will be hosted at Roman Park Hall, Aylesbury on Saturday 22 June.

The Midnight Walk will also be accompanied by its two sister events as the Walk is evolving to become a whole weekend occasion. Twilight Walk and ‘Not the Midnight Walk’ are the new sister events.

All of these events are designed for friends and family to get together and celebrate the lives of loved ones and show appreciation for the Hospice which has supported the local community over the past 35 years. All in colourful and bright lights and clothing, lighting up the streets of Aylesbury.

The Twilight Walk is the first of the events to take place, in the evening (7.30pm) on Saturday 22 June. It’s designed for under 15s and is a 2-mile route starting at Roman Park Hall.

The Midnight Walk is Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity’s traditional event and has taken place numerous times since its inception in 2010. Taking place at Midnight on Saturday 22 June, participants will receive free t-shirts and don bright lights and colours as they walk either the 5 or 10-mile Aylesbury route.

‘Not the Midnight Walk’ is an event for people who cannot attend on 22 June but still want to support the Hospice and walk to show their appreciation and to remember loved ones. This event can take place anywhere and it is up to the participants to decide the location, time and duration of their walk. ‘Not the Midnight Walk’ can take place at any time on Sunday 23 June.

With three events taking place over the whole weekend, the Midnight Walk has evolved for 2024. Lyn Denham, Community & Events Fundraising Manager, said: ‘With the Hospice celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, we wanted to share our excitement with the local community and this event’s growth is one of the prime examples. It also provides maximum inclusion as people of all ages will be able to take part across the weekend.

‘The community strongly supports Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity and the Midnight Walk has always been one of the best supported charity events in the Buckinghamshire calendar. With the inclusion of the remembrance lanterns, the memories of loved ones will once again be a powerful and visual reminder of what this event is all about.’

Tickets for all the Midnight Walk Weekend events are available on the Florence Nightingale Website. Tickets are currently in their early bird phase, ending on Wednesday 22 May.
