Event description

Description

After dark on Saturday 10th March, hundreds of supporters dressed head to toe in neon will gather at Coventry University’s Square One venue to take part in The Myton Hospices’ Glow in the City event.


This year’s event will kick off with a ‘pre-glow’ party where participants can take part in a Zumba-style warm-up organised by Zumba instructor, Matt Print and UV colour throw.

Given the phenomenal success of last year’s event, which sold out within a matter of weeks, organisers have taken steps to make this year’s event even bigger and brighter by incorporating neon powder paint and a UV bubble tunnel along the course.

Participants can embrace the party and atmosphere created by this year’s organisers thanks to plenty of dance, music and vibrant flashing lights which are set to feature throughout the 5km route around Coventry city centre.

Once they have completed the course, participants are invited back to Square One to dance the night away at the ‘after glow’ party'.

For more information or if you have any problems signing up please call 01926 358 382 or email events@mytonhospice.org
