We are giddy with excitement at the idea of the return of our annual trip to Alton Towers theme park! Due to the global pandemic, our Alton Towers event was unable to take place in 2020 and 2021 but it is returning in 2022. 

Join us on Saturday 9th April 2022 for our 7th trip to the theme park for a day of awareness, support, friendship, fun and rollercoasters! 

Our first Alton Towers event took place in 2014 and was born as an awareness event but has grown into much more than that! A crucial part of the whole day is the fact that everyone who is part of the Alopecia UK trip wears the blue Alopecia UK t-shirts and/or hoodies on top of their clothing. This creates a supportive and friendly atmosphere in the park and gives everyone a confidence boost, enabling those with alopecia to just relax and enjoy their day with family and friends.

We facilitate groups to go round the park together so they can meet others affected by alopecia as the socialisation with others is a huge part of the day.  However some people choose to go round the park in their own family/friendship groups, either for all or part of the day.  It is up to the individuals attending.  We just want everyone to enjoy their day and have fun! 

Tickets are now on sale for the event and we have lots of further information links on our event page, hopefully answering any questions you may have. 

We would LOVE to have a big crowd joining us and if previous years are anything to go by, not to mention the number of tickets we've already sold on day 1 of them going on sale, it promises to be a fantastic day! 

The event is designed for people affected by alopecia of all ages and their families. We attract a real mix of attendees - adults, teens and children with alopecia, those who are new to having hair loss, those who have had it for years, those who come on their own and those who come with family or friends. Children with alopecia aged 3-17 are eligible for a FREE ticket. This must be purchased with at least one Adult ticket. (ANY children age 2 & under go free).

The day is an uplifting one filled with positivity and feedback from previous events shows that our attendees get a lot from joining us at Alton Towers. This blog post from 2019 even shows how firm friendships are formed.
