Parkinson's UK Members' Day and AGM

Join us for our Members' Day and Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Saturday 12 October 2019 in London, Newcastle, Templepatrick or Stirling - or participate from your home computer, tablet or smartphone.

Open to all members of Parkinson's UK, this year's Members' Day and AGM is a chance to see the impact we’re making together, as you hear from members, staff and volunteers sharing ideas and successes from across the UK. You'll also be able to chat to trustees and both our retiring and incoming chairs.  

We'll share updates on key financials, the impact of our existing 5-year strategy (including research) and the results of the trustee elections.

You're also invited to be part of an interactive session that will explore the benefits of physical activity and exercise in managing and even slowing down Parkinson's development.

At the Members' Marketplace you can discover more about Team Parkinson's and each area of our work, and share with us how you would like to stay involved in shaping the future of Parkinson's UK.

Locations

In 2018 we trialled holding 3 concurrent events across the UK to make it easier for our members to attend and participate in the AGM and Members' Day.

We're building on this in 2019, with 4 concurrent events in London, Newcastle, Scotland and Northern Ireland from 11am to 3.45pm on Saturday 12 October. We hope to add a Welsh event next year.

The venues are:

  • Etc Venues County Hall, Riverside Building, Belvedere Rd, Lambeth, London, SE1 7PB

  • Royal Station Hotel, Neville Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 5DH

  • Hilton Templepatrick, Castle Upton, Templepatrick, BT39 0DD

  • The Stirling Court Hotel, University of Stirling, Airthrey Rd, Stirling, FK9 4LA

Important: You can only vote in person at our London event. If you're attending in Newcastle, Templepatrick or Stirling you'll need to vote by proxy in advance.

Our VIP co-host

We're delighted that Paul Mayhew-Archer will be our VIP co-host again this year. Paul has written some of the UK's most loved comedy shows and his trademark wit and insight about living with Parkinson's was a high point of our 2018 event.
