Parties in 2010 and older

Older Mad Hatters Parties

We've been running Mad Hatters Parties for more than 10 years!

During that time we've had the pleasure of meeting some fantastic entertainers, helpers, donators and - most importantly - lots of wonderful party guests.

Incredibly, we're at the point now where some of our original guests have returned as helpers for the party.

Press & TV coverage



We've been very luck to enjoy great support from our local newspaper - The News - as well as ITV/Meridian

About Us

Untitled-11The Mad Hatters Parties are events organised to lift the spirits of children with cancer or serious illnesses and disabilities. We have been running the parties for 10 years and they are held at the Portsmouth Marriott Hotel. All of the funding for this is raised from donations, and any funds remaining are used to provide equipment for the children's wards and to give gifts and special trips for children who are very seriously ill. The next event is in February 2013, admission is by invitation only as numbers are limited. We are looking for a sponsor for the 2013 party!

Untitled-1The parties seem to get bigger and better each year and the photos from the last few parties are now in the gallery, to check them out you will need to register if you haven't already done so, if you have then log in. You'll then see a button labelled "Hatters Gallery" in the left-hand column. There is also lots about the parties on the Portsmouth News website and you can use our links to find all of their articles.
