TICKETS ON SALE UNTIL 04/07/2022

Join Alopecia UK for a weekend residential trip to the Kingswood Activity Centre in Dearne Valley, South Yorkshire! 

This will be our second trip to the Kingswood Activity Centre following a very successful first trip in 2021! See all our wonderful photos from our previous visit here. 

This event is suitable for children with alopecia aged 8-16 and their families.

  • Activities are not suitable for children under the age of 7/8. Children under the age of 8 (e.g siblings) are able to attend but please note they will not be able to take part in the full weekend.

If you would like to discuss this further please contact the event organiser, Naomi on [email protected] or 0800 101 7025.

At the Kingswood centre children and their families are able to spend the weekend meeting others who understand their journey, building confidence, making new friends and having lots of fun! 

In family groups, you will stay in either the 'Eco Pods' or the 'Adventure Lodges' and take part in our specially created timetable of activities. 


Feedback from our 2021 event:

  • "Superbly organised event. The activities were really good and worked well for all the family. The enthusiasm from staff and volunteers was great and they made sure that everyone was involved as much or as little as they wanted to be. Our group worked really well and the kids made good friends with each other."
  • "It was just so reassuring and empowering to spend time with people going through the same thing as us. The icing on top was that it was also an amazing family time for all of us and we all left happier for it."
  • "Amazing time to spend with friendly people trying something completely new. The best support for the children in a completely natural, unforced way - my daughter was asking me questions about her alopecia after talking with another child as they compared notes - and she has never even asked anything about it before, it was lovely to hear them exploring it together."
  • "My daughter had never met another child with Alopecia this weekend made her really realise she wasn’t on her own and it was actually more common than she had thought. We couldn’t have had a better weekend."
  • "The most memorable part of the weekend was my son facing his fears on the zip line and taking that step off the ledge (after some gentle coaxing!)! Such a confidence boost to him, and a memory he will have forever. That, and making new friends."
  • "Honestly one of the best things we have been involved in as a family. A great opportunity to see the children (and us) outside of their comfort zones, and succeeding by being supported, and supporting one another. Thank you Alopecia UK, we hope there are many more to come."
  • "Staff and volunteers were exceptional. The activities programme was great and got everybody involved and it was really good that our younger children were not forgotten about."

    (Alopecia UK is pleased and proud to be able to financially support the Kingswood Residential Weekend. To make this event as accessible as possible we charge approximately 50% of the costs to attendees, which means the charity absorbs the other 50%.  If you have the means and can contribute more towards the full cost, we would graciously welcome your support. As a small charity, any saving on the full costs means that we can make more impact elsewhere; your support would mean that we are able to provide more support to people affected by alopecia and more events like this in the future.)

  • Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.  Once the event sells out we will create a waiting list should we have any cancellations.  

  • Ticket and merchandise sales close Monday 4th July 2022. Tickets are subject to availability and Alopecia UK retains the right to close ticket sales earlier than the advertised date.
