About the event
Wowzers! We’ll be hosting our annual Mega Weekend event between October 26th and 29th 2017 at the Woodland Grange hotel – of which we have exclusive use – in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.
Three full days in which people with dwarfism and their families can attend a range of interactive workshops, informative talks, and fun activities, including:
- Medical session with Dr Michael Wright;
- Clothes alteration and sewing;
- Cartoons with professional illustrator Rob Jerome;
- Fire Poi;
- Dwarfism in history (for ages 11+);
Arts and crafts;
And much more…
New friendships can be forged and old ones rekindled over this special long weekend, which includes a festival-themed party on Friday (with prizes for the best-dressed kids and adults) as well as a Gala Dinner, disco, and firework display on Saturday.
RGA UK Vice-Chair Eugene Grant said: “As a child with dwarfism, the RGA UK Mega Weekend was one of the highlights of my year – spending the weekend with people I didn’t have to explain myself to… I remember the excitement of arriving and the sadness of leaving – instantly longing for next year’s event to come around.”
Past attendees said: “This was our first social occasion with RGA and we are not yet involved with any other groups. The weekend was amazing; we all had a wonderful time. The venue was excellent, fantastic food and the staff were so friendly and helpful. The committee must have worked so hard to put on such a fantastic weekend. We’re looking forward to next year.”
