Event information

Event date:2nd December 2020
The stars are coming out to help us celebrate the Julia’s House Christmas Cracker – an online concert to welcome in the festive season on Wednesday 2 December.

We can't host our popular carol services this year so we have decided to bring everyone together online for an evening celebration that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. It's going to be a very special evening indeed. We’re delighted to be joined by actress, comedian, impressionist and singer Debra Stephenson, who will co-host this Facebook Live event alongside Julia’s House CEO Martin Edwards.

Sponsored by Addo Food Group, the Julia’s House Christmas Cracker is a big night in for all the family to enjoy, featuring live music, Christmas readings and lots of fun. Our special guests include Guy Henry (Holby City) and Julia’s House patrons Chris Jarvis (CBeebies), actor Nigel Havers, best-selling author John le Carré and James McVey of pop sensations The Vamps, who will be leading a festive singalong. There’ll also be a chance to meet some of the children and families that Julia’s House supports across Dorset and Wiltshire, and hear their inspiring and moving stories.

This online event is free, but throughout the evening you'll have the opportunity to bring some Christmas cheer to the families we care for by donating live.

Even the smallest of gifts can make a life-changing difference to the family of a desperately ill child, and will help Julia’s House to continue offering a vital lifeline of support during COVID and beyond.

Children and families cared for by Julia’s House need your support more than ever. Throughout the pandemic we've been on hand to help exhausted parents take a break from 24/7 care, enabling them to feel less fearful, lonely and isolated. The care provided is changing every day with visits taking place in families’ homes as well as video play sessions and story-time, as Julia’s House adapts to the needs of families in line with government guidelines. 

Let us know you'll be there via our facebook event -  save the date and join the festive fun!
