Parkinson's UK Members' Day and AGM

Join your fellow Team Parkinson's members at this year’s Members' Day and Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Saturday 12 October 2019.

Team Parkinson's is the new name for membership of Parkinson's UK – and it's a new way of showing the world that we're one big community, uniting to end Parkinson's. Forever.

This year's Members' Day and AGM is a great opportunity for members of Team Parkinson's to share ideas and inspiration, learn about our new 5-year strategy and help shape the future of Parkinson's UK.

Location

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
