 ‘I had people that wanted to speak to me, drink, dance, be with me for me and give me their time. No judgement, no negative vibes, just an allowance to do things at your own pace.

Don’t get me wrong there was nerves, anxiety in the build up and even on the journey but on arrival there was a warm embrace, a friendly smile and straight off you are made to feel welcome. Thank you for that opportunity and giving me friends that no matter what in life I can call friends unconditionally x’ – Kevin

The evening consists of…
A hot and cold buffet with a yummy desert, the menu has been designed with IBD and ostomate’s dietary requirements in mind. However if you do have any medical dietary requirements please email before Thursday the 2nd of May 2024.
There will be a photo booth, our favourite DJ, dancing, a few thank yous, maybe a game or two and some extra surprises for you all to enjoy. Whilst there will be hundreds of bellies in attendance, don’t worry there are plenty of loos and a free cloakroom if you need to bring any extra bits with you.

Additional icebreaker social activity on Friday night (17th of May 2024) for party guests – £TBC
In addition to Saturday’s World IBD Day ball, we may host a heavily subsidised evening activity (i.e. bowling) should there be enough interest for guests who choose to stay the night before as a fun icebreaker and an opportunity to get to know one another. You must purchase Saturday’s party ticket before reserving your space on the coach for Friday night’s social activity. Spaces are limited so first come first served.

Guests preferred hotel accommodation is Travelodge Birmingham Airport which acts as a great meeting point during people’s stay. Many people meet in the bar area of the hotel on the Friday evening and Saturday day which is the perfect opportunity to get to know some guests in preparation for Saturday evening’s event.

In previous years guests have chosen to stay the weekend with partygoers arriving at the hotel from the Friday.

***We strongly recommend you book your hotel accommodation early as the costs fluctuate/skyrocket as the date gets closer***
Previously parking at this hotel consists of a daily rate of £8:49 – this rate is only available if you pre-book 12 hours in advance of your arrival! Use code TRAVELODGE7

Please shop around for cheaper accommodation!  Alternative nearby hotels would be Travelodge Yardley or Travelodge Solihull both of which have free parking. You might also like to consider renting on AirBnB if visiting as a group.

We can’t wait to make even more amazing memories with you all!
