Fire Walk 2022

14 October 2022 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm Hospice of the Good Shepherd, CH2 4DG

Are you brave enough to walk on fire? 

Join us on Friday 14th October 2022 at the Hospice of the Good Shepherd, Gordon Lane, Backford, CH2 4DG to take on the challenge of the longest and safest fire walk in the UK provided by Blaze, the fire walking experts.

Is it real fire? Yes, burning at an average temperature of 1236 degrees Fahrenheit! To put it into perspective: paper combusts at 451 degrees Fahrenheit, aluminium melts at 1100 degrees Fahrenheit! Don’t worry, it is safe!

Are there age limits? The minimum age is 14 years of age (parental/guardian permission required). There is no upper age limit. The oldest person that has fire walked with Blaze was 89 years young.

What does it feel like? A number of people don’t remember having any physical sensation at all about the experience. Some say it was cold, some say it was warm.
