We are holding an exclusive event in store where you will be greeted with a glass of wine/ non-alcoholic alternative on arrival, be inspired by our fashion show, food tasting, raffle and an out of hours shopping experience with us. Tickets cost £3 each which raises money for Midlands Air Ambulance.
Tickets are available to purchase in-store at the womenswear collection point until Monday 26th August. Limited places are available.
Our monthly visitor days are the ideal opportunity to come along and see what we’re all about. You will get the chance to meet the animals, explore our beautiful site, and get to know the team.
Bring your friends, family, and all of your curiosity for the perfect day out with our delightful residents. We’ll be here to welcome you between 2pm and 5pm on the first Saturday of each month, so come along and don’t forget to save room for some tasty vegan cakes.

This year, Shrewsbury will be celebrating all things Fab Four with the Shrewsbury Beatles Weekend. On September 20th, 21st and 22nd there will be a whole range of events in the town including live music, tours, special guest speakers and Beatles film screenings – once again proving that All You Need Is Love. On the 19th our preview event is a 2-hour boat cruise with live Beatles music by Tony Stanton.
The weekend will finish with a concert at Theatre Severn featuring – from Liverpool – the top Beatles tribute band, The Mersey Beatles.
The entire weekend is in aid of the Mayor of Shrewsbury’s charity 2019-20, the Samaritans of Shrewsbury.
There will be additional events across Shrewsbury including musicians presenting live renditions of Beatles songs in the cellars of The Buttermarket, a venue reminiscent of the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool where the Fab Four first attracted attention.
Five great Beatles films will be screened at The Walker Theatre on Friday and Saturday – ‘Backbeat’, ‘Looking For Lennon’, ‘Good Ol’ Freda’, ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ and ‘The Beatles: Eight Days a Week’.
The Beatles played in Shrewsbury three times – once at The Granada, twice at The Music Hall – and they even wrote one of their biggest hits, ‘From Me to You’, while travelling from York to their next gig in Shrewsbury in February 1963.
In addition, it’s the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ classic album, Abbey Road, this September and The Mersey Beatles will be performing the album in its entirety as part of their act.

Join us for an 8 mile sponsored walk along the Welshpool canal for the children and families of Hope House!
The walk is free to enter, open to all and a fabulous day out for the whole family. There is no minimum sponsorship, but we do ask all our wonderful walkers to raise as much as you can to help us continue to be here for the children in our care.
We will start at 10am outside the Hope House shop in Welshpool (at the top end of the Tesco car park) and walk to the halfway point of The Horseshoes Inn at Berriew where you will be able to buy bacon butties to fuel your way back to the finish line and your hard-earned medal. Registration opens at 9.30am.
The incredible Teresa Thomas, one of our Hope House mums, organised our first ever Welshpool Canal Walk in 2016. After she sadly passed away in 2017, we have continued her wonderful legacy by walking in her memory ever since. We invite anyone who is up to the challenge to step out with us in memory of Tease, as she was affectionately known, and walk in her footsteps. You are also very welcome to join us to walk in memory or celebration of your own loved ones or simply for the children of Hope House.
