Why not get away from it all by joining us in the beautiful surroundings of the Brecon Beacons National Park for our popular Retreat Weekend in June, 2018.

The stresses of modern life will all be washed away at the magnificent Buckland Hall in Wales where a weekend of fun is planned, including interactive workshops, therapies, gourmet food and lots of laughter with fellow Encephalitis Society members.

All events are optional - meaning YOU decide what you want to do.

Take part in a workshop, visit the on-site masseur, or simply wander the 60 acres of gardens, parkland and lakes – the choice is yours!

The weekend is open to anyone aged 16 and older who has been affected directly or indirectly by encephalitis.

Feedback from previous Retreat Weekends:

We found the Retreat so relaxing and calming. We made new friends, some we are keeping in contact with. We feel it made a huge difference to both of us.


The way the whole weekend was managed made everyone feel included. There was laughing, light chat, heart-to-hearts, and time to wander off with your own thoughts.
