On Sunday 18th August, Anna’s Hope invites all fairies to put on their fairy dresses, bring a picnic and come to ‘The Big Fairy Picnic in the Park’ in the grounds of Burghley Park. Elves and the whole family can come too.
The picnic will take place between 1200 and 1600 and there will be lots of fun and games plus a Fairy Treasure Trail, Story Telling, Ponies and Face painting. There will also be a best-dressed Teddy Bear competition, so don’t forget to bring your teddy in their best outfit. It will also be the anniversary of last year’s successful Guinness World record attempt for the largest number of people dressed as fairies and Anna’s Hope would love to see all the record breakers again.
The event is free and for anyone dressed as a fairy or elf they will get half price admission to the Garden of Surprises. Founder of Anna’s Hope and Anna’s Mummy, Carole Hughes said: ‘Anna loved dressing up as a fairy and we were delighted that everyone had such a great time at last year’s fairy picnic. There were little fairies, big fairies, sumo fairies and soldier fairies and lots of fairies have asked us to have a picnic again.’
For those who want to help and give hope to children with brain tumours you can donate at the picnic or by visiting the Anna’s Hope stand.
