The street will be filled with film stars when this hospice’s movie themed moonlight walk takes place.

This year, Katharine House Hospice, in Banbury, is ‘going to the movies’; inviting the hundreds of walkers who take part every year to take on a 6-mile or 10-mile walk dressed as their favourite film star.

The event will take place at Easington Sports Club on Saturday, May 20, from 7pm.

The evening will begin with a pre-walk picnic at Easington Sports Football Club, with movie-themed music and local food stalls before the walkers head off towards Bodicote and beyond.

Events Project Manager for Katharine House, Helen Lerwill, said: “The moonlight walk is one of our most popular, most successful events.

“Not only does it raise around £50,000 for us every year, it is always such a lot of fun to do.

“We’re really excited about the themes this year, and seeing what characters people turn up as.”
