Head to the National Coal Mining Museum for a magical sponsored walk in aid of Forget Me Not Children's Hospice.

You will wind your way through the enchanted Nature Trail with miners lanterns, fairy lights and a few surprises along the way.

Make the event extra special by dedicating and decorating your lanterns. The route will lead to the Memorial Garden where you can place your dedicated Memory Lantern and take some time for reflection and remembrance.

As the walk comes to an end, look to the sky to see the spectacular firework finale.

Hog roast available on the night for guests to purchase food & the Museum cafe will be open.
