All events listed on this website have always been organised and run entirely by a small group of unpaid Trustees, Members and Volunteers of Hotham Park Heritage Trust. In the Autumn of 2019 the decision was made to close the Trust because of a lack of people willing to volunteer their time.

The new charitable group, Friends of Hotham Park, hope to continue the legacy of HPHT by organising various activities in the future but they need your help. For more information please email or click here.

The following is an archive of an event organised and run by Hotham Park Heritage Trust in 2015.

Further donations and support gratefully received from

Despite the wind and rain several hundred people attended this event on 6 December 2015 and we thank you all for your support. Festivities began at 4pm when our younger visitors met Father Christmas in his grotto and enjoyed music and other amusements. At 6pm a large crowd gathered round the bandstand to sing traditional Christmas Carols and songs, accompanied by the Worthing Silver Band and Glenwood Ladies Choir. Visitors also enjoyed other magical Christmas entertainment that the Trust had lined up for their enjoyment at this traditional annual event. Mulled wine, mince pies and a lucky number song sheet featured where, for a minimum donation of just £1, you could have one free drink from the Hotham Park Heritage Trust stall and enter your lucky telephone number into a champagne prize draw, with proceeds going towards the future development of Hotham Park.

Hotham Park Heritage Trust is a Registered Charity and the work was undertaken by a group of unpaid Members and Volunteers. This meant that funds raised at our events were spent on improving the amenities in Hotham Park for the benefit of the public. Your support was vital in helping us to achieve this and we thank you for your attendance.
