Hampton, Our Mascot

Message from Hampton

Hello, my name is Hampton and I am an 8ft Hedgehog who has now been with the Edwin James Festival Choir for two years. Before that I lived with Freda Hughes as the Littlehampton Carnival Mascot.


I was then adopted by Chris Allen and the Edwin James Festival Choir, I am now about to hibernate for two months as it is January and getting cold. It was hard getting used to a new family but they made me feel so welcome and I love living at Hampton Hall, which is really a room in St James’ Church Hall in East Ham Road, Littlehampton.


I've had a great time in 2018. After being in the Pancake races in February, I went to see the Kiddy Winks at River Beach Schools for their fantastic event in June. They even got me in the running event with the other mascots! Early in July, I had a fantastic time with my friends at St Barnabas Hospice shop in Wick, enjoying a dish of water and special Hedgehog cakes at their fundraising Tea Party. I have also appeared at the "Mayor's Party in the Park" on 15th July where the Littlehampton Mayor was raising funds for the Arun Youth Projects. Everyone had a great day, and I made a new friend "Monty the Mewsbrook Mallard" who lives with the Friends of Mewsbrook Park. On 21st July, I made an appearance at Jamie’s Wish Family Fun Day and enjoyed all the fun activities that were there. At the Christmas Winter Wonderland Concert in December, I enjoyed playing with three new friends Barnabee the Bee from St Barnabas House, Sidney the Squirrel from Chestnut Tree House and Wilf from St Wilfred's House. 


It is the Choirs intention that I have to be available for parties and celebrity event openings. If anyone would like a loveable cuddly hedgehog to come to their events, please  get in touch.


Ps. I am housetrained and only ask to be fed, watered and paid a sum for my celebrity appearance.

Soothes the mind and gives it rest,

Heals the heart and makes it whole,

Flows from Heaven to the soul."
