Event description

Description

Welcome to the first London Support Group Roadshow for Alopecia UK!

The aim of this event is to allow people living in and around the London area (and beyond!) with or affected by alopecia to have access to an exhibition hall of suppliers such as wigs, scarves and semi-permenant make up (TBC). We are hoping to have a mixture of stalls, talks and demonstrations in order to share information about some of the options we have for managing our alopecia.

There will also be a social area for people to relax and get to know each other, where we will be selling refreshements - such as hot/cold drinks and cakes. All proceeds from the purchases of the refreshments will go to Alopecia UK.

Tickets for this event are completely free, and we are only asking for you to register for a ticket so we can keep an eye on numbers!


Hope to see you there!

FAQs

Why is the London Support Group hosting this event?

As the support group lead for London, Amy is often approached by suppliers requesting attendance at group meetings to promote their product. Amy often declines these requests on the basis that this is a support group only. However, understanding what products are available for people with alopecia is incredibly important and meaningful for members and so the idea of a Road Show was born! This event is being hosted and organised by the London Support Group Lead Amy who is a volunteer. Therefore, please be aware that this event in not going to be the scale of Alopecia UK's Big Weekend!

How have the suppliers been selected?

Amy has marketed the event with known London (and surrounding areas) suppliers based on personal experience, group member suggestions and well known suppliers. However, it is important to note that there is a limited space and so unfortunately not all suppliers will be able to have representation at this event. In addition, the suppliers who do attend the event are not endorsed by Alopecia UK - this event is being set up for information sharing and support purposes only.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The London Roadshow is being held within a beautifully refurbished church crypt opposite Borough Tube Station, making it very easy to get to by public transport. Borough Tube Station is on the Northen Line (bank branch). The church is a 10-15 min walk away from London Bridge station and is on a number of bus routes

There are no parking facilities.

Can I bring family members/friends with me?

Yes of course! However, as we would like this event to be enjoyed by as many people with alopecia as possible, there is a restriction on how many tickets one person can register for. Thank you for your understanding.

Is this event suitable for children with alopecia?

Amy can't guarantee the providers at this early stage, however, suppliers have confirmed they could also provide wigs/scarfs etc. for children with alopecia. Therefore, it is suitable for young people and children but there may be more limited stalls and items aimed directly at children.

Is the crypt fully accessible?

Yes, the main entrance to the crypt is down a small set of stairs, however a lift is available for those who require it

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Yes - please bring your ticket along with you to gain access to the roadshow

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please feel free to contact Amy Harmsworth on london@alopecia.org.uk with any questions or queries about this event
