Covid-19 update

***The Big Retreat 2020 - Postponed ***

Thank you  for your patience and trust as we work though this dynamic situation.

The Big Retreat Wales has been closely following Government guidelines regarding the hosting of our event surrounding the outbreak of Covid-19.

Like all of you, we are finding our way through a stressful and  anxious time - we've had sleepless nights, conversations & consultations across the board. There have been tears. 

For a long time, we had hoped that we would be able to host The Big Retreat this May - a sort of 'light at the end of the tunnel' - but with such a dynamic situation that is changing daily and following the new government measures announced this week, we have no choice but  to postpone The Big Retreat Wales.

We are so incredibly disappointed.  
We know you will be too.

All  tickets will automatically be rolled over and be valid for these new dates in accordance with our terms and conditions.  

Instead of focusing on what we can't do - we prefer to look at what we can - we are developing a new network for TBRW to share our community on-line  - bringing you podcasts, yoga, fitness, music, arts & crafts 

Therefore - The Big e-treat was born. All of the creativity, inspiration and discovery of the UK’s most exciting wellbeing event, through a simple and convenient app. 

And whilst it can’t serve up the wild, unspoiled backdrop of the Pembrokeshire coast, we can virtually take you there... The app offers a stellar and eclectic line up of some of most recognised and forward-thinking experts in their fields, from Mental Health to garland making.

Launching on Friday 22nd May 2020, The Big e-treat app will host exclusive content, designed to be enjoyed whenever and however the virtual festival-goer wants their feel-good fix. As in previous successful years, the core festival areas will be Fitness and Yoga, Self-Care, Learning and Discovery, Arts and Crafts, Entertainment and Food and Drink.

Whilst the line-up of guests, workshops and classes continues to build, for launch month The Big Retreat are thrilled to announce a selection of those joining them this May including; mental health check-in’s with TV star and mental health campaigner Matt Johnson, Breathwork with Richie Bostock, , Life in lockdown podcast with Toni Jones and Dan Kennedy, Fitness Workouts with Kate Rowe-Ham and Lawrence Price, The Shelf Help Book Club, Yoga Session from The Nordic Sisters and The Strength Temple - Richie Norton, foraging walks, Garland Making with Mr Plantgeek, as well as live music, foraging walks and competitions

All ticket holders will be sent a link on Friday 22nd May and have free access to the hub for the next 12 months as a thank you for rolling their tickets forward or you can sign up on our website for our early bird price of £6.99 a month 

You are part of The Big Retreat family  and we want to keep in touch, to keep sharing the positivity and ensure our little community sticks together through some challenging times ahead 

Please follow us on FB, Twitter or Instagram for news, updates and positivity.

We will advise you as soon as possible once we know the new dates 

With much love, Amber, Diana and all at The Big Retreat Wales

Q - I bought Under 5yo or Youth tickets - if they have Birthdays before the next dates - will they still be valid or will I have to pay more?

Q - What are the dates for the new Festival ?
A - We are waiting for advice from the Welsh Government on when it will be safe to hold our next event 
Q - Can I get a refund in stead of a rolled over ticket?
A - We are having to postpone the festival due to a 'force majeure’- circumstances totally beyond our control. With 8 weeks to the festival we have lost all revenue, paid deposits, paid wages and invested significantly in the 2020 festival set up. So we would really appreciate your help and support in rolling your ticket forward (tickets are now valid for the next 2 years) And as thank you for rolling your tickets you have free access to our new online app  However we understand that does not suit everyone , as an alternative, please do not sign up to the new app and once we have announced the revised Festival dates, we will set up a market place on our social media site for you to sell your tickets to a future Festival go-er or we can offer a refund 
Q - Will the programme, speakers and line up be the same for the next Big Retreat?

All Camper Van and Camping Tickets will be valid for new Festival  Dates.
Q - I booked the Extended Camping Option to stay on longer - will that be valid for the next Festival? 
A - Yes, your Camping extension will be valid for 4 days immediately after the Festival finishes on the private campsite .
