Venus Midnight Walk

Walk in memory of someone you miss or just join us in celebrating 40 years of St Michael’s Hospice at our fun and vibrant midnight walk.


Venus returns for it’s 16th year of painting Hereford’s streets pink! Grab your glowsticks, bring your friends, and have the ultimate girl’s night out with us.

What to expect

The Venus Midnight walk is one of our most-popular events! In 2024 it returns for its 16th year and will be extra special, as it’s also commemorating 40 years of St Michael’s Hospice. Venus is a walk around Hereford adorned in pink. The brighter you are the better, as we aim to light up the streets of Hereford with our sea of pink-ladies walking together in remembrance or just for fun!

But wait, there’s more! Before the walk begins, deck yourself out in pink with our fabulous merchandise and face glitter, and grab a refreshing drink to get in the mood. Don’t forget to visit the memory garden station, a poignant touch added to all three routes. With music and a vibrant summer evening atmosphere, it’s an experience you won’t want to miss!
