Secret Garden Memory Walk

Walk in memory of your loved one and support Birmingham Hospice at the Secret Garden Memory Walk on Saturday 8 July 2023.

Ticket sales have now closed online – but you can still register at the Secret Garden Memory Walk from 4pm.

We’ve brought together the magic of past events, Enchanted Walk and Sunset Walk, to bring you an exciting new memory walk in 2023. Starting and finishing at the beautiful Botanical Gardens, this magical walk is a special way to get together with your family and friends to celebrate and remember your loved ones.

Doors to the Secret Garden open at 4pm where fun activities and entertainment await you, before you warm up zumba-style and head off on your 2.5k or 10k walk through the leafy streets of Birmingham! You’ll finish your memory walk by walking past the stunning white rose display. Here, you can take a moment to remember and reflect before heading back to the finish line to celebrate with a glass of fizz.

What’s new in 2023? A family friendly 2.5km route and ‘Children’s Trail’; follow the clues across the 2.5km route to reveal a secret word and claim a prize! We know times are tough, so we’ve lowered all of our ticket prices and are offering FREE tickets for children under the age of 16. There’s no sponsorship target for this event, but now more than ever we’re asking everyone to fundraise if they can, and as much as they can. We’ll be here to support you every step of the way, and to say thank you, if you raise over £50 and you’ll get a free Birmingham Hospice t-shirt to wear with pride as you walk!
