Join us for our very first OctoberFest!​

It's a festival of 3 weeks of online activities from the 5th to the 23rd of October, preceding our AGM that will take place on the 22nd. What a great idea, I hear you say?

Who is it for?

We have been organising this festival for the community of people suffering from ME/cfs, Fibromyalgia or/and long Covid symptoms. It is a time to get together and share good moments with people who understand your condition. This festival is free and open to non paid members, and we encourage you to become a member to take part in our future events.

How to join?

The whole festival is over Zoom, and you need to register (for free) to each session you wish to attend. The registration page along with more details about each activity can be found by clicking on the name of the activity in the calendar above. You are welcome to join for all of them! The link to the meeting will be in the registration's confirmation email and it is unique to you.

The registration system is securing the sessions from external intrusions. You are in a safe space. Also, you do not need to turn your camera on during the activities, and you can even join by phone with the number provided in the registration's confirmation email.

Need help with Zoom?

It is easier to join if you have the Zoom app installed on your desktop or phone. If there's any issue, call us! 07753 948186. If you feel unsure about joining an activity over Zoom, we will be happy to answer any questions you might have and we can even guide you through a private 'trial' meeting so you have a first experience of it.
