BFRB Fest 2023

Community ~ Creativity ~ Learning ~ Recovery
To mark the end of BFRB Awareness Week (Oct 1st-7th) BFRB UK & Ireland are hosting our first community-wide virtual event since our official launch in August 2022.
BFRB Fest is a celebration of our inspiring, diverse, and immensely talented community, and will be of interest to individuals, families and professionals alike. It brings together expertise and experiences from a range of speakers who all have lived experiences of body-focused repetitive behaviours, and who now dedicate their work and lives to breaking down the stigma of these disorders through advocacy, treatment, research and more. This event is not limited to audiences within the UK and Ireland, so feel free to join us from any location or time zone!
Kindly note that we have put together a policy and guideline document for this event to safeguard everyone in attendance. Please take the time to read this 1 page sheet, and confirm you have read and understood these terms by ticking the box during registration. This guidance has important information about the steps we have taken to ensure this space is comfortable for all, including details on how to protect your anonymity at the event should you wish to do so.
There is no fee to attend this event, but if you would like to support the work we do, you can make a donation through this website. All donations are greatly appreciated and help us to sustain and grow our work as the first charitable organisation dedicated to body-focused repetitive behaviours in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
We look forward to seeing you at BFRB Fest!
