Bristol, Friday 27th - Sunday 29th September 2019

[Ticket sales close: Friday 20th September]

EARLY BIRD TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

Come along to Alopecia UK's fifth 'Big Weekend' where we will have a series of events for those affected by alopecia. This year's host city is Bristol.  We have four individual events that make up the weekend and you can choose to attend either one, two, three or all four.  Below you can find a brief overview of the weekend and tickets.

Weekend overview:

Friday EVENING:  Our Exhibition Hall will be open with reception drinks and canapes.  A great opportunity to meet others with alopecia in a relaxed setting (7pm - 9:30pm).  Suitable for adults and older teens.  We advise children to save themselves for the Saturday! 

Saturday DAYTIME:  An adult conference filled with talks, workshops, exhibitors and demonstrations.  The focus here is very much on information sharing (9:30am - 5:30pm).  We will also facilitate a Children and Teens specific event within the conference with games, a crafty area, a chill out area, and some fun workshops and speakers (10:30am - 4:30pm). 

Saturday NIGHT TIME:
  Suitable for all ages.  A great opportunity to chat with others over a buffet dinner followed by some fun and dancing!  As always we will have a blue theme in honour of it being Alopecia Awareness Month so do dig out your blue dresses, suits, shirts, tops, fancy dress (?!) – anything goes!  (7pm - midnight).

Sunday DAYTIME:  Sunday is typically our day for raising awareness in the local city whilst also seeing some of the local city.  Plans are still to be firmed up for the Sunday but the current plan is to get our Alopecia UK tops on and take our ‘sea of AUK blue tops’ along the River Avon for some photo opportunities at various sights and landmarks and finish with a picnic at the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge (10:30am – 3pm).

More details will be announced over the coming months but you can view our last Big Weekend brochure here to give you an idea of what the day might be like.

Tickets and discount price merchandise can be purchased below.  Please note merchandise is for collection at the event so that they can be worn for the Sunday Awareness event.
