Celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Venus eXperience
Make 2017 eXtra special, by joining around 1,000 sparkling women as they light up the midnight streets of Hereford while remembering their loved ones.
Start the evening with a mass confetti canon release, share a drink with friends and enjoy live entertainment from Sunshine Radio, one of our area’s most listened-to stations.
Be part of the sisterhood and decorate yourself with the sparkle and colour of your favourite Venus goodies ready for the warm-up and the Venus X midnight walk.

Shimmering carpet of candles on the Castle Green

And at the end, to show you have met the challenge, you’ll be presented with your Venus X medal.

Please help your Hospice
Thousands of amazing women have raised over £500,000 over the last nine years of Venus. We want to ask you to continue this tradition and raise sponsorship to help St Michael’s Hospice care for people at a time when they need it most.
You will automatically receive an email with a sponsor form and instructions for setting up a JustGiving fundraising page.
How much sponsorship should I try to raise?
There is no minimum amount of sponsorship. Every pound you raise helps us care for local patients and their families.
For every £10 you raise you’ll get your walking number entered into a grand draw to win a case of wine and chocolates (big enough that you’ll be able to share around a group, too). The more you raise for your Hospice, the more likely you are to win.
