Tickets are now on sale for our next ‘Big Weekend’ taking place on Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th September 2015.  This year’s host city is Manchester.  After last year’s sell out event in London we have decided to make this year’s event even bigger and better with a variety of talks covering all the latest on research, treatments, and coping with alopecia.  We will also have an interactive exhibitor’s area full of all the latest products for those with alopecia.  As always we will have a variety of extra add on events that people can attend to make it a proper ‘weekender’.  For example this year we will be wandering along the cobbles of Coronation Street!  A big part of our events is bringing large numbers of people affected by alopecia together for information sharing and support and this weekend will be no different.  Don't miss out, buy your tickets today.

We were delighted to get such positive feedback last year with 100% of respondents saying they would be likely to recommend the event to someone with alopecia.  Below are some of their comments...

I would just like to say thank you to everyone involved in organising yesterday's event.  It was a wonderful day.  Super presenters and presentations.  Everything was so well organised and ran so smoothly.

We had such an informative day and were so impressed with the organisation and speakers, we, as everyone else, were so lucky to be there.

When we asked people last year what they liked about the event they said…

Everything !!! Feeling so normal after weeks and months feeling lonely.

It was lovely to see so many people with alopecia and supporting people with alopecia.

Very interesting to meet lots of other people with the same condition as me.

love feeling supported by so many wonderful amazing individuals who really understand how I feel.

Well organised, informative yet relaxing and informal.

Very informative, great speakers.

Quality of speakers and especially meeting people with the same problems.

I loved the conference side, getting up to date information on what's happening in the research world. Also the Awareness event at Kings Cross, not too much walking and really reaching people.

Thoroughly enjoyed the walkabout in London bringing awareness to the public. The karaoke night was fun too even though I didn’t participate with the mike!!

We have a limited number of early bird tickets so be sure to get in there first!
