19th Annual Social Gathering & Information day
Saturday 23rd September 2023

The Alpha-1 UK Support Group has historically held our Annual Social Gathering & Information Day in the month of September, sadly the COVID pandemic meant our last meeting was in 2019. We are delighted to be hosting our 19th annual event once again this year and very much look forward to welcoming our members old and new.

As usual we will have an impressive line-up of speakers, including expert alpha-1 clinicians and representatives from the pharmaceutical industry with an active interest in developing therapies for alpha-1. 

Our annual event is the largest gathering of Alphas and their families in the UK, and many members take the opportunity to have a long weekend away with some arriving on the Thursday and leaving on the Monday. It is an ideal opportunity to catch up and socialise with friends old and new and have a thoroughly good time.

We will also be holding the Charity Annual General Meeting on Sunday morning 24th September at 10:00 am, and you are warmly invited and encouraged to attend and be proactive in helping shape our year ahead.

We look forward to seeing you.
