The 76th Snowball
2nd December, 2023
The Snowball is held every year with the aim of raising a collection of toys for needy children in the Yorkshire area. We have also been able to donate funds to a number of children's charities; most recently supporting Stockeld Park RDA and Lineham Farm.
Other fantastic causes include Springwater School in Starbeck, the Aireborough Supported Activities Scheme, the children's ward at Leeds General Infirmary, Throstle Nest Riding for the Disabled, Digibete and Martin House. To find out more about the charities we have supported click here.
We're delighted to announce that the 76th Snowball 2023 will be hosted again at the Old Swan, Swan Road, Harrogate. The event will be taking place on Saturday 2nd December. The Old Swan is one of the most famous hotels in Harrogate, with a history going back nearly 200 years. It is surrounded by pretty lawns and gardens, and is just a short walk from the town centre, which combines Victorian splendour with contemporary luxury. Now is the time to get your tickets.
What's Happening this year?
After a fantastic reunion last year, we can’t wait to welcome you back to the Old Swan on Saturday 2nd December and the cost of the tickets remain at £65 per person. There will be a welcome glass of Prosecco on arrival, followed by a 3 course meal and dancing to kick start the festive season in style.

Guests are asked to bring new unwrapped toys for disadvantaged children. These gifts are impressively piled up on a sleigh upon arrival, and given to the NSPCC to bring Christmas smiles to as many families as possible!
