BIG RETREAT WALES
Looking for something different to do over the Whitsun weekend, away from the city? Fancy a break from your busy lifestyle to recharge and reset? Sounds like the Big Retreat Wales on 24-27 May might be what you’re after.
This unique feel good festival, now in its second year, is a chance to spend three days of relaxation and discovery in the breathtakingly beautiful village of Lawrenny in Pembrokeshire National Park.
From an old castle terrace high above the Cleddau Estuary, attendees can take part in over 200hrs of activities and entertainment included in your ticket price including Free Swing boat rides for the kids, cookery demos and talks, foraging, bushcraft, spoon carving, fitness and yoga classes, arts and craft workshops or simply chill out in a hilltop hammock with a good book or listen to live music.
Little ones aren’t forgotten about, either; under 12s get in free and can enjoy kids’ yoga, kids’ fitness classes, bug hunts, bushcraft, foraging, shelter-making, music, arts and crafts and running freely around the gorgeous countryside spot. This year, Majical Youth are bringing their Vintage swing boats and a selection of games to the main Festival Terrace, encouraging the younger generations to drop their screens and gadgets to have fun outdoors.
Of course, all that excitement requires a lot of energy, so there are plenty of foodie treats planned for tasty replenishment, from campside cook-outs and street food stalls to demos and tastings, Whilst the Talk Tent hosts a section of authors and speakers including Digital Detox expert Tanya Goodin and Celebrity Photographer Dan Kennedy teaching us how to be happy in this fast paced life.
The Apprentice’s Alana Spencer will be demonstrating her Ridiculously Rich cakes, Jackie Pallet sharing healthy Indian cooking, The Bug Grub Company turning critters into culinary delights and The Voice’s Ragsy donning his new persona as the Rock ‘n’ Roll Chef.
In the evenings, musical entertainment comes from Rusty Shackle, Climbing Trees’ Matthew Frederick, Mazaratis, Jodie Marie, Cappa Ceilidh Band, Ofelia, The Sun Dogs and a handful of other soloists and groups to unwind with under the stars.
Tickets include access to all on-site fitness classes, relaxation sessions, workshops and live performances. Professional massage therapies, reiki, paddle boarding, canoeing and coasteering incur a small additional cost.
