Evening Event

Join us for an unforgettable evening of connection and celebration at the Sudden Cardiac Arrest UK Annual Conference!

Relax, socialise, and forge meaningful connections with fellow attendees while enjoying a delightful buffet meal and light entertainment.

Trevor Cline Magician

Once again, we will be entertained and mystified by the wonderful talents of close-up magician Trevor Cline. Be prepared to be amazed and entertained with wonderful magic and awesome balloons from undoubtedly one of the UK’s finest and most experienced magicians and balloon artists.

Maddox Jones Musician

We’re also excited to have Maddox Jones, a talented British singer-songwriter and keyboardist who will provide musical entertainment for the evening. After years of playing in bands and collaborating with other artists, Jones embarked on a solo career in 2020 with the release of his critically acclaimed debut EP, Headspace and has followed it up with other great tracks such as We All Need Somebody, Ready to Be Better and Somewhere there’s a plan. His keyboard skills have been heard on numerous recordings and live performances over the years.

We’re thrilled to have these amazing performers at the Survive and Thrive event, where their talents will surely enhance the evening.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to be a part of a supportive community and create lasting memories.

We asked for feedback on previous events, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive…

92% gave the day a 5/5 (and the rest a 4/5)!

98% said that the event had been helpful

There were many great comments about most aspects of the day, but many were about the fact that this was an opportunity to meet other survivors.

Some quotes:

“The whole event was one big party”

“…the most emotional and happy thing that I have been subject to in years”

“Meeting other survivors and their families, it was like therapy as everyone just gets it.”

“Wonderful people with whom I have made friends and something I will treasure forever.”

“So many people with similar tales to tell who had overcome cardiac arrest (with significant help from the NHS and friends and family) and seeing similarities between your own experience and theirs”

“Best experience since my SCA by far.”

“The evening event was so relaxed with people just getting to know each other – think we all feel we have made friends for life.”

“Amazing day, great organisers and the volunteers were very helpful throughout the day”

“You rock!!!!!!”

“Simply one of the best weekends of my life!!!”

Rest assured that along with our partners, the Essex CTC and Heartwize, we will endeavour to make this the best day of your life since your SCA.

So we do hope you can join us this year, and we look forward to seeing you in November!
