Yellow Ribbon Day

Enjoy a family-fun day out in support of St Catherine’s Hospice at our popular Yellow Ribbon Day garden fete.

Everyone is welcome to enjoy a host of entertainment, activities, food and attractions in the beautiful grounds of St Catherine’s Park, including a fairground and petting zoo.

It’s free entry, and there will be plenty of stalls with local traders selling handmade crafts, clothing, toys, books and much more; dancers and singers to keep you entertained throughout the event; lots of games and fun for all the family including a tombola and ‘splat the rat’, and delicious food and drinks including a barbecue from The Mill Outside.

We’re also excited to bring a brand new attraction to this year’s Yellow Ribbon Day – cheer on contestants in our Truck Pull between 1pm and 2pm, or click here to take part in this one-of-a-kind charity challenge. We’ve joined forces with Leyland Trucks for this adrenaline-filled fundraiser.

Our gardens will be decorated with beautiful yellow ribbons tied in memory of special people during Yellow Ribbon Day and throughout June and July. Please click here to make your Yellow Ribbon dedication.
