Our wonderful New Year's Eve gathering, to see in 2018 together!
Join us in celebrating the arrival of 2018, in this beautiful and peaceful retreat, on the edge of the Forest of Dean. It really is a gorgeous setting and also perfect for us in so many ways. The house and grounds are charming and there are beds for up to 50 people. There are rooms for doing workshops and activities and even a "Saxon House" to visit. The grounds and views are spectacular and you really get the feeling of being a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of normal life
DATES: Friday 29th Dec 2017 to Monday 1st Jan 2018 (3 nights)
WHERE: The Wilderness Centre, Mitcheldean, Gloucestershire, GL17 0HA
The main aim of this gathering is simply to come together as a community, but of course we will have workshops and activities which we will all offer, making for a very special few days together.
Costs are all shown on the booking form. There is no option to book for less nights as we pay for the entire house, rather than per person per night. Children's fees are in general half of adult prices, except for beds, which are the same (as we have limited beds available)
Rooms sleep 2, 4, 6 and 8 people, in adult sized, wooden bunk beds. We also can have indoor camping, campervans or caravans, but we need to keep total numbers down to about 50 due to the challenges of catering and eating together, and so the price reflects the fact that we will have to pay for the beds even if they are not used. This would be a plus for others though - as that would mean less people sharing the rooms!
Indoor camping - a new concept for this group - there is a small building outside the main building which can be used for sleeping in, but there are no beds provided. If you're happy to do that, then you can just pay the camping / caravan fee instead of a dormitory bed.
There are no reductions for anyone in this event as everyone will be expected to contribute in some way, whether through giving workshops, entertaining (adults and kids) and / or preparing food etc. It will be a community experience
We will also organise other activities and art and craft sessions for both adults and kids, which will be free.
Excited by the idea? We hope so! Why not book your place now, and we'll see you there?
