More dates all be added for later in the New Year! watch this space :o)

Housekeeping: Minimum of 4 people for an event, or the event will be cancelled. 
All events are intended to be friendly, relaxed and supportive, however, they are not intended as a support group. If it is a support group you are interested in, please contact us on the email address below, and we will do our best to get the relevant info to you.
All events are open to patients, fatigue CRESTA staff and clinicians. Please bare in mind that these events are not hospital appointments, and individual health concerns should not be raised at these events.
Finally...enjoy, and we look forward to meeting you!!
If you would like to come along to any of the above, would like more information, or would like to put forward your own ideas, please contact us at:
or on our Facebook page -

While it is really useful if people can give us an idea whether they are able to come or not, so that we can check each meet-up is viable, get contact details for if we need to cancel, and establish numbers to book tables etc if necessary, we have chronic illnesses ourselves so are fully aware that people may need to back out last minute due to illness! We may need to do the same though, which is why we'd really appreciate if you could email us at to let us know that you intend to come, so that we can let you know if we have to cancel. Thanks!
