This wonderful, winter event celebrates love, life and hope for people in and around Barnsley. This year we will see Lan-Tarn Fest paired with another very special event, the opening of our new Neo Natal Unit!
On the day you will be able to lay a lan-tarn as a dedication to a loved one you have lost, in celebration of recovery or successful treatment, you may even simply wish to decorate a lan-tarn as a symbol of hope or to make a special wish. In addition to this, tours around the new unit will be available throughout the day (psttt… we advise pre-booking here).
Lan-Tarn Fest 2018 will be held on Thursday 8th November at the front of Barnsley Hospital, Gawber Road from 2pm until 7pm.
Dedicate a Lan-Tarn
Lan-Tarn packages will be available to purchase before and during the event. You may choose to dedicate a Lan-tarn to a loved one you have lost and include their name and a message in our Book of Dedication. Or you may choose to decorate a Lan-Tarn in celebration of recovery or successful treatment and include a message of thanks to the wards/team or teams that helped you on your road to recovery in our Book Of Appreciation. However you may simply wish to decorate one of our Lan-tarns as a symbol of hope or to make a special wish.
