The Big Retreat Festival



Looking for a break Late May Bank Holiday 24th - 27th May 2019? Something different? Get away for a bit, recharge and reset? Sounds like you need The Big Retreat Wales!

Discover this unique Festival of Feel Good. Now in its third year, The Big Retreat Wales is a chance to spend 4 days of relaxation, discovery and fun. All set on an organic farm in the breathtakingly beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Inspired by smaller retreats held on the same site, The Big Retreat is a smörgåsbord of classes, workshops, live music, fun, fitness & yoga

Passionate about wellbeing - in all its guises - this years programme is even bigger. With an all-inclusive approach to ticket prices - over 200 events, classes, workshops activities & talks taking place across the Festival site are included in your price - no hidden extras. And all out in the fresh air with far reaching views over the Cleddau Estuary. And plenty of cover should it rain.

The idea is to get up, get out, and find your feel good - listen to some great music, join a cookery demo, listen to some great authors and speakers in our talk tent, learn a funky dance class, immerse yourself in yoga, learn a bit of bushcraft, get a sweat on in a bootcamp workout or join a 5km run. If a slower pace is more your thing - join the resident artists in the Chill Out zone, make some jewellery - or learn bushcraft skills for that time when you go live off grid. Take time to slow down, re-connect. There's something for everyone. 

Music starts around lunchtime - so if your idea of an escape is kicking back to live music, a cool drink from the Lawrenny Arms Bar - then do just that.. with hammocks, bean bags, & plenty of space - just do as much or as little as you please all weekend. 

Our little ones aren’t forgotten - with kids yoga, bug hunts, kids fitness bushcraft, foraging , music, arts & crafts - and not forgetting the sheer delight of running freely in the gorgeous countryside. Majical Youth are bringing their Vintage Swing boats - operating free of charge through the weekend - we are determined to get kids off their gadgets for a while! New for this year is the amazing Pantheon Theatre Group - for all 13 - 17 year olds. A weekend of theatre and drama for them - and dare we say time for you to indulge in that on-site hot tub?! 

All that running around will build up an appetite - so what can you eat? Well - we have many delights in store - from Raw & Vegan treats, salads & juices, the best burgers in the west, wood fired pizza & the most amazing toasted cheese on sourdough delights you’ve ever had. With The Cookery Tent featuring a packed line up too, you'll pick up some culinary tricks and tips - not least how to make the Perfect Gin & Tonic! 

Tickets include access to over 200 hours of activities , workshops, arts & crafts and live music. Professional massage therapies, hot tubs, reiki, jewellery making are available too at small extra costs.

With something for everyone, we’re sure you’ll Find Your Feel Good!
