Alopecia UK chose Bristol for this year’s host city as it's a well-positioned quirky epicentre for the South West. With fantastic transport links to the rest of the UK, people from all over the country will be able to attend, whether they’re travelling by bus, car, train or plane. The Bristol Marriott Hotel City Centre made the perfect venue thanks to its size and close proximity to the city centre.

The event will bring many benefits to Bristol across the three days, including raising awareness of what’s on offer in the city to a wider audience, extended stay for some of the delegates allowing them to get out and about in the city, and hopefully some returning visitors. Hosting the event will also raise awareness around Alopecia locally and enable those in the Bristol area to gain a better understanding of the condition.

In the UK, an estimated two people in every thousand are affected by Alopecia Areata and this figure could be higher with many people suffering in silence due to lack of knowledge or embarrassment. During the course of the Alopecia UK Big Weekend, attendees will be able to find out about products and services that can help, listen to talks from experts in alopecia, chat to others affected by hair loss and much more.

By providing these events, Alopecia UK hopes to support and build the confidence of those with alopecia and make sure nobody suffers in silence, while allowing for a chance to meet others who have gone through the same experience.
