Who is this event for?
This event is for anyone aged 18 or over living with and beyond cancer in
Northamptonshire. Whether you are due to start treatment, currently undergoing
treatment or have completed treatment.
The event is all day and there will be lots to see and do but there will also be quiet areas if
you need to take a break.
Can I bring someone with me?
Yes, you can bring a plus one. Our Wellbeing day is for relatives, friends and carers too.
Your plus one must be aged 18 or over and they will need to fill in their own booking form.
We will ask for the name of your plus one when you register so that we can keep an eye
out for their booking. This doesn’t mean you have to pick the same workshops as each
other but if you do we can try and place you together.
Is there parking at the Hilton Collingtree?
The Hilton Collingtree has a barrier car park, however parking is free for all attendees and
the barrier will be left up at the close of the day so that you can exit straight away. If you
need to leave earlier in the day, please speak to the reception staff who will provide a
code and instructions on how to exit.
The postcode for the hotel is NN4 0XW.
Is there a bus stop nearby?
The nearest bus stop is a 15-minute walk from the hotel and more information can be
found via the stagecoach website.
