Pergamano Retreat – Doors are Open!
Thanks for popping in. What a fantastic morning we have had! Remember I told you something huge is going on at Clarity? Well, it’s official! It’s going ahead! I’m so excited!! Let’s make a date on Friday, for me to tell you about it though; there’s still some paperwork to sort out. But when the ink is dry, on Friday, I will sing it from the rooftops – loud and clear !
In the meantime, the dates have finally been finalised for the 2020 Parchment Retreats at the Spa Hotel in Tunbridge Wells:
Monday 20 & Tuesday 21 April
We are optimistic that the weather will be better in April than in March. Remember the snowstorms a couple of years ago? Hats off to the troopers among you who waded through snowdrifts to get down to Kent! But let’s make it easier by moving it back a month again, eh?!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with our Clarity Retreats, they are a 2-Day event. Two full days of parching, interrupted only be refreshments! You can come on the Sunday afternoon, a much better day to travel on the roads, and take full advantage of the Spa facilities and swimming pool, before meeting up with friends in the evening. I’ll sort out a little get together on the Sunday evening for us there.
There are several tutors and helpers, headed up by Linda Williams and myself, and all skill levels are covered. We have a fantastic set of projects in store for you this time. Yes. I think you will be impressed. Linda has outdone herself.
We run the course at the iconic Spa Hotel in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, and should you wish to stay there, we have secured a great price for accommodation just for us. These prices are a bargain and usually twice as much! There are a limited number of rooms this year, so don’t delay.
Sunday to Thursday Bed & Breakfast:
Single room £89 per night
Cosy Double room for single occupancy £99 per night – Double/Twin occupancy £109 per night
Cosy Deluxe room for single occupancy £109 per night – Double/Twin occupancy £129 per night
Spacious room for single occupancy £119 per night – Double/Twin occupancy £149per night
Some of you make a whole weekend of it too, so the tariffs are a little higher on the Friday /Saturday.
Single room £104 per night
Cosy Double room for single occupancy £114 per night – Double/Twin occupancy £149 per night
Cosy Deluxe room for single occupancy £124 per night – Double/Twin occupancy £169 per night

Sounds great and wish I could join you,
Any chance of a retreat here in the North of England. It was discussed at Leyburn this year with Barbara.
Thelma, there is already a one day Groovi retreat at Leyburn, the day after the Open Day. Or are you looking for something else? xx Maggie (Silvercrafter)
We have done that one this year and asked Barbara if we could have a 2 day retreat. She asked us to find a venue but perhaps she is too busy to check it out. xx
Sorted! Hotel booked so I could get my favourite and very convenient room. Retreat booked. Just need to be patient now till April. It just gets better each year. xxx Maggie (Silvercrafter)

All booked. Something to look forward to after the winter weather. I do so enjoy the Groovi retreat always come back having learnt something new. xx
Is there going to be another open day in ditton Kent will this also be in april
Regretfully we can’t make it to the retreat this year which is a shame because I enjoyed it so much last year. Linda is a wonderful teacher and I learned a lot.
If there was a retreat or open day nearer to Norfolk we would be there with bells 🔔 on.
The last of my orders have now been dispatched so I will have lots of toys to play with over the holiday.
This looks like a fabulous event. The hotel looks amazing. Some day I’ll get there. Hopefully when the US venture starts there will be classes on this side of the pond that I can attend.
Hello Barb, I bet those bookings will be coming in fast, there is a huge following for you, Groovi, Linda and Pergamano in the parching world. Take care all. Bx
