Central London & Newcastle locations

You want to write. Really you do.
If you could run away to Rome and write with the Italian sunlight streaming through your balcony doors you’d be in heaven.
You’d be so productive.
But there are bills to pay, work to do, things to clean, people to see and that dinner won’t make itself, will it?
Then there’s that small voice at the back of your head suggesting that maaaaaaybe you’re procrastinating…
We all need some help sitting down and actually doing it sometimes.
Imagine somewhere you could go to escape the normal world and just write for hours at a time.
* Please be aware that on Sundays there is a church service underneath the venue from 12-2:30. This means it partly runs across lunch, but we have no control over it and they do create a lot of noise, including singing. Loud singing.
If we can find a suitable new venue we’ll arrrange to move, and let you know (with the option of cancelling if the new venue isn’t convenient), but for now please consider bringing headphones!
Important! If you need to change or cancel a one-day retreat, you will need to do so at least a fortnight ahead of your booked retreat date. If you find you’re not able to come after this date, you’re welcome to give/sell your spot to another writer.
