Event description

Description

Our Family Days are held across the UK to give your family a relaxed and supportive experience, with others who understand. So if you or your child (0-18) is living with a brain tumour, come and join us for a wild day away.

Our Christmas Family Day is a fun, festive experience for families affected by a brain tumour, where you can meet others who understand, no explanations needed.

At our Marwell Zoo Christmas day you and your family will have the chance to meet the zoo’s animals, get into the festive spirit and spend a special day together. Your family can join the elves in Wonderland at Marwell Hall, sample festive refreshments, and make your own Christmas gift in the elves workshop. You’ll also join Mrs Clause in The Tea party room for stories from Alice’s trips to Wonderland. And, finally, your family will have the chance to meet Father Christmas and receive a special gift before posing for a professional family photo.

It’s sure to be an enchanting day out for all and get your family in the festive spirit.

We know that time together like this is priceless. So our Family Days are price-less. There’s no charge for attending, and lunch, snacks and drinks are all provided in in the festive marquee.

“Family Days strengthen our family’s bond. When we share activities together it forms strong, emotional ties in our family helping us adapt to the health struggles we’ve faced in the past and in our daily life.” – Anja Laeuschner, whose daughter Madina, aged 12, has a craniopharyngioma.

*Due to the popularity of our Christmas Family Day last year, we’re pleased to be holding two events for 2019. Please note, due to high demand, we kindly ask you to please select just one Christmas Family Day so we can ensure everyone can come along for a festive day out.

PLEASE NOTE: Sat Navs have often been known to lead people to the wrong location so please double check before heading off.

If you have any questions, or would like to find out more please contact us or visit our website.
