There are so many ways you can get involved and support Chestnut Tree House

The Snowman™ Spectacular

Due to the ongoing situation around COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision that The Snowman™ Spectacular 2021 will not go ahead on Saturday 4 December.


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™.

We know a lot of our guests were really looking forward to attending the event and cancelling for a second year has not been an easy decision to make.

Delivering The Snowman Spectacular requires an all year-round planning cycle, and while the vaccine roll-out continues to be successful, the many uncertainties that need to be resolved to safely deliver mass gatherings inside and the complexity of organising the ball, means that we have made the difficult decision to cancel for a second year.

The Snowman Spectacular Online Auction

Despite having to cancel The Snowman Spectacular fundraising ball 2021, we are delighted that the Online Auction will still go ahead in November. Watch this space for more details!

“I am delighted that my Snowman and I are involved with Chestnut Tree House, and I know what a huge difference this wonderful charity makes to children and families in our local community.
This year has been difficult for many of us. But for families of children with life-shortening conditions, there have been even more challenges. Please support Chestnut Tree House so that they can continue to be there for the children and families who need them.”
Raymond Briggs CBE
