The Snowman™ Spectacular

Due to the ongoing situation around COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision that The Snowman™ Spectacular 2020 will not go ahead on Saturday 5 December. We look forward to returning to the Hilton Brighton Metropole next year on Saturday 4 December 2021. There will still be an Online Auction this year, so watch this space!


The Snowman™ Spectacular is the biggest event on our fundraising calendar and celebrates over a decade of association with our friend and Patron, Raymond Briggs CBE, and his beloved character, The Snowman™.

The Snowman™ Spectacular 2019 was an outstanding success, raising £404,665. Raymond Briggs once again generously allowed us to use his iconic illustrations, and guests enjoyed a magical evening in a winter wonderland setting – inspired by the original The Snowman™ book – as well as a host of first-class entertainment and fundraising activities.

“I am delighted that my Snowman has helped Chestnut Tree House raise so much money over the years to provide vital care for so many local children and families.”
Raymond Briggs CBE

The money raised at The Snowman Spectacular will help us to continue helping local children with life-shortening conditions and their families. For today. For tomorrow. For the Now.
