What are the 12 Days Of Wishmas events?

Join us for these exciting, free, and accessible festive activities, both online and in person.

12 Days Of Wishmas are 12 free, festive events for our Wish Community in the build-up to Christmas! Each event is tailor-made so children and families can have fun, meet others who have faced similar experiences, and get excited about Christmas together.

Across November and December, we’ve planned jam-packed activities happening across the UK, including a mega Christmas party, ice skating, theatre trips, arts and crafts, and much more! There’s something for everyone to get involved in.

Scroll down to view all of the activities across 12 different locations.

*Please note: Due to the popularity of these events, families can only book two events, plus the Christmas party, so everyone can have a chance to join in.*
