Themed Weeks

Did you know that each of the 11 weeks of the Elmer trail has a theme? We’ve chosen themes which we feel connects the trail to St Oswald’s Hospice and allows us to celebrate all the things that make the hospice and the north east so ele-fantastic. Each week, you’ll see stories in the local press, on our website and across social media that will bring the trail to life. We will shine a spotlight on everything from our Elmer artists and creative talent in the region and celebrating our local heroes and history to the importance of health, wellbeing and spending quality time together.

We always want to hear your stories, so please let us know if you have a special reason for taking part in Elmer’s Great North Parade or what the hospice means to you and your family.

Spending quality time together

Monday 21st Oct to Friday 1st Nov

It’s your last chance to see the Elmer’s on the streets, before they stomp off to their forever homes! Make your final visit count and make the most of the half-term holidays.
