This event was previously organised to take place on Saturday the 24th of February 2024, however due to the England vs Scotland Six Nations match also taking place in Edinburgh that evening we have been advised to move the date. Hopefully this means the city centre will be less busy and accommodation (for those needing it) will be easier to come by. The new date is the weekend after, Saturday the 2nd of March 2024 (all other details remain the same). 

Join us on Saturday 2nd of March 2024 for a fun get-together in Edinburgh. An opportunity to enjoy the company of others with alopecia, meet some of the AUK team, have a bite to eat and a few drinks! 

More about the venue

We've booked a large space in the upstairs of the venue*, this is not a completely private hire as others can choose to pass through and use the bar on this level but all the tables will be for our booking. 

As this is an evening event in a place that sells alcohol, it is only open to those aged 18 and over. 

*The venue is fully accessible. 


Tickets are £20 per person. Your ticket will include entry and there will be a light buffet offered. Drinks will need to be purchased separately from the bar.

This price contributes towards the costs of the event. Alopecia UK is pleased and proud to be able to financially support this social event. 

If you have the means and can contribute more towards the full cost, we would graciously welcome your support. Any contribution, however small, would mean that we can continue to provide support to people affected by alopecia and have more events like this in the future. You can contribute more by adding an optional donation during checkout.
