Bath’s biggest pyjama party

2024 is all about pyjamas, as we host the biggest PJ party in town! Get into the bedtime spirit by snuggling into your own pyjamas, onesies and dressing gowns or even up-cycle some gorgeous nightwear from one of our Dorothy House shops!

Start time…and party time!

The Midnight Walk is for people aged 12+ and starts at the Bath Pavilion. Arrival is from 9pm with time to enjoy drinks, food and fun and funky warm-up with Cheryl Sprinkler from Mojo Moves. Our 10K walkers will set off at 10pm, followed by our 5K walkers heading out at 11pm, enjoying the sights of Bath on a wonderful summer night!

All the walkers will be back to Bath Pavilion around midnight where we’ll continue to celebrate with our legendry slumber party with the celebrations at the Pavilion will finishing at 1.30am!

Hospice at Home

This year, the money raised from the Midnight Walk will fund our Hospice at Home service. 10pm is the time that our amazing Hospice at Home team start their critical shift caring for patients in their own homes.  This time matches the first walk’s start time of 10pm, which means you’re both putting in a shift to support care in our community.

We’re asking each walker to aim to raise a minimum of £50 for Dorothy House. This could fund two hours of overnight care, provided by one of our compassionate, skilled and experienced Hospice at Home carers!
