Sponsored by    

All children, from 0-16 years, are invited to join us to take part in a sponsored evening walk in aid of Rowans Hospice. It’s a truly magical evening; HMS Victory will be illuminated and we will explore the secret areas around the Dockyard, areas usually closed to the public. Every child will receive a fabulous medal, a hot drink and snack on completion.

There is an optional dressing up theme this year: Pirates & Princesses!

We ask that each child tries to raise £25 in sponsorship. We know for some this may be a challenge, however we are very grateful for every £1 raised.

Download your Star Template


All children are invited to decorate a star in memory of a loved one, to display in St Ann’s Church. You will also be given the opportunity to light a candle.

Please download and print your template here or wait for one to arrive with your registration pack. Please note - we politely request stars are printed at the size provided so we can fit them all on the Wall of Stars on the night.

Then SHARE your child's completed design on our Facebook event page, Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag #StarlitWalkStar - we'd love to see their creation!

Due to wonderfully popular demand, the 2017 Starlit Walk is now fully booked!

To register your interest in 2018's walk and receive booking information closer to the time, please email Teresa at with "Starlit 2018 Information Request" in the subject line.
