Firewalk and Family Fright Night

Firewalk and Family Fright Night

This is the hottest, shortest and most daring sponsored walk you’ll ever do!

Starts: 29th October 2019 - 4:30 PM

The Nothe Fort
Barrack Road

Join Weldmar Hospicecare at the Nothe Fort on Tuesday 29th October, for frighteningly fiendish fun and games, and, if you’re brave enough, the Firewalk!

Our Firewalk is the shortest, hottest sponsored walk you will ever do –  a bare foot walk over red-hot wood embers measuring around 1200 degrees Fahrenheit! 

We also have:

  • Slime Making
  • Pumpkin Carving
  • Face Painting
  • A Trick or Treat Trail
  • A Fire Eater

There are no tricks and no special effects during the Firewalk.  It’s just you and the fire!  Some describe the sensation as walking on eggshells others as walking on hot sand.  Each walker has their own experience.  There is no scarier place to be this Halloween!


The registration fee is just £30 and will secure your place on our 2019 Firewalk, and you can book below or call us on 01305 261800.  Everyone taking part gets free entry to the Nothe Fort and we ask that you raise just £150 in sponsorship for Weldmar Hospicecare. 

There are a limited number of places available, so book yours now!

Normal entry fees to the Nothe Fort apply (unless you are doing the Firewalk), with 15% of proceeds coming to Weldmar Hospicecare.  This is £8 for adults and £2 for 5-15 year olds.

Our Firewalk and Family Fright Night follows The Halloween Family Fun Day at the Nothe Fort – find out more about that here.

Our thanks to Somerleigh Court for supporting our 2019 Firewalk!
