WHAT IS IT? 

It's a long weekend in Cornwall on a lovely farm retreat. The venue is made up of converted barns set amongst fields with orchards, hairy cows and gorgeous nature walks, the perfect place for a joyful weekend of improvising & retreating. 

WHEN IS IT?

WHERE IS IT? 

Lower Marsh farm. 

Near Saltash, Cornwall, PL126NG

WHO'S GOING? 

It's going to be a small (bijou) group. There are up to 12-16 places available, depending on room configuration.

HOW DO I GET THERE? 

Trains from London Paddington to Plymouth or Saltash Station start from £110 return if you book in advance.

Coaches from London to Plymouth can be more economical starting at £15.

You'll need to book a taxi from the station to Lower Marsh Farm but we can organise taxi sharing to keep costs to a minimum. 

WHAT WILL WE DO THERE? 

Aside from doing 21 hours of Improvisation workshops, you can make use of the incredible free retreat facilities. Stargaze from the outdoor hot tubs, chill by the fire pit, play a game of tennis on the courts, or ping pong in the games room, read by one of the indoor log fires, take time out to chill in the meditation well or while strolling in the lush forest. And for the truly adventurous: head down to the water for a wild swim in the River Tamar.

EXTRA ACTIVITIES

For an additional cost, you can enjoy beautiful surroundings as you learn Stand Up Paddle Boarding in the River Tamar. Private massage treatments are also available. 

WHERE WILL WE SLEEP? 

There are 2 barns and 1 cottage with bedrooms and bathrooms in each.

Every bedroom will be made up to have either 1 king size bed or 2 -3 x single beds. This year we also have a new 'Glamping' option of 3 wooden yurts.

WHO IS IT FOR?

The June 2023 Retreat is aimed at intermediate level. The classes will be pitched at a level for improvisers with at least 6 months of improv workshops and show experience.

WHAT WILL WE EAT? 

The food is all included! What? I know! The retreat venue can also cater to dietary requirements too. So you will get 3 cooked meals per day as well as afternoon tea refreshments.  Hurrah! 

Note: If you fancy alcohol and or extra snacks, do bring it along as the closest shops are not within walking distance.
