Grantham, Lincolnshire - Regional Rep Drop In Saturday 6th September


Empowering Young Adults...at Alton Towers! - 30th August 2014



The Encephalitis Society would like to invite all young adults between the ages of 14-21 to join us for a very special event.

We are in the process of developing education and information materials specifically intended to empower young people and what better way to help us do this and meet other young people that have been through Encephalitis than spending the day at Alton Towers!!


The event begins at 10:30am however please feel free to join the team from 9:00am if you would like. The morning will consist of getting to know each other and a discussion around youth materials and experiences. After a buffet lunch groups will have the afternoon to enjoy the park and all it has to offer! We would meet again at 5:45pm with the park closing at 6:00pm.  

More details will be sent upon receiving your booking form.


Booking Fee

Your ticket will cost the bargain price of £20 per person! This includes park entry, morning refreshments, lunchtime buffet and complimentary parking! 


We ask that you make your own travel arrangements to get to Alton Towers. There are bus and trains to Alton Towers – you can find more information here www.altontowers.com/useful-info/how-to-find-us/  

Who is Invited

Everyone is welcome but we ask that parents look after children under the age range of 14 and enjoy their time in the park separate to the young adults attending. In addition to developing our education and information materials a further aim of this event is to empower and bring young people affected by Encephalitis, be that personally or as a sibling, together in a safe environment. In some cases this may be the first opportunity some young people will have to enjoy a recreational activity with their peers outside of an educational environment. If your child is under 12 we may be able to offer a further discount, please let the office know (admin@encephalitis.info or call 01653 692583).

About the Team Attending

Staff from The Society are all Disclosure & Barring checked to enhanced level and there will be specialist care provisions for the youth group, plus lots of volunteers to help. If you could please let us know what special requirements you may need on the booking form.

How to pay

To confirm your place we will require £20 per person attending along with this booking form. Please enclose a cheque for the relevant amount in the freepost envelope provided or alternatively if you prefer to pay by card please call the office on 01653 692583.

Please note the cost of the weekend is non-refundable in the event of cancellation unless we are able to re-sell your place. Unfortunately we are unable to help with travel expenses.

This event should be very popular and we only have limited space therefore we recommend you get your booking form back to us as soon as possible, as places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please send your booking form and money to us before 15th August 2014.

Looking forward to it already, see you soon!
