How to get free entry into Birmingham attractions

Run along and raise money for hospice.

Time is running out for people to take advantage of the early bird entry special for Acorns Santa Run – coming back to Birmingham this December.

Families are urged not to miss out on the reduced-rate ticket offer before it ends at midnight on Monday 1th4 October.

The family-friendly fundraiser, which takes place at Millennium Point on Saturday 7 December, is being held to help fund Acorns vital care for babies, children and young people with life limiting and life threatening conditions.

Rachel Farrington, Acorns Events Officer, said: “We’re so excited to bring Acorns Santa Run back to Birmingham – it’s one of the highlights of our fundraising calendar!

“It’s is a magical event and the perfect chance for people to support a great cause while soaking up the festive atmosphere and by signing up before October 14 you can take advantage of our ‘Early Bird’ reduced-rate ticket offer.”

The event will see hundreds of Santas and Elves descend on the popular city attraction getting themselves firmly on the nice list by raising money for Acorns.

New for 2019 is an interactive festive 2k trail which is fun for all the family, plus food music and FREE family days out included.

Rachel added: “Acorns Santa Run is not only heaps of fun, every penny raised will make a real difference to the children and families we support. It costs Acorns £27,000 every day to provide our vital services, so events like this are crucial for helping us fund our care.”

Acorns Children’s Hospice offers a network of specialist palliative care and support for babies, children and young people with life limiting and life threatening conditions, as well as support for their families.

In the past year Acorns has cared for over 780 children and more than 1,220 families, including those who are bereaved.

Early Bird tickets for Acorns Santa are priced £12 for adults (15+), £8 for little Santas (9-14 years) and little Elves (3-8 years). Early bird ‘Reindeer’ (dogs) are priced £4. Under 2s are free.

Tickets cover the cost of the event, but every pound raised in sponsorship goes directly to supporting local children and families. Tickets include free entry to a host of visitor attractions, including National Sea Life Birmingham and Thinktank.
