  • How do I get to my Both Feet Actor Training Retreat?
    It's easier to get to us than you think! All our retreats are run from our home base Bodlondeb Studio & Retreat: Bodlondeb Studio & Retreat Dinmael, Corwen, LL21 0NY You can get here by plane, train, bus or car - https://www.both-feet.co.uk/find-us Good to know: In order to ensure all retreat participants can have as much fun as possible, we try to encourage roughly three - four people from each group to drive. Often groups under this number will come together and hire a car for the period to allow flexibility. (This can be confirmed the week prior to your retreat when your groups WhatsApp chat group is created.)
  • What should I bring?
    Rest assured that a week before your retreat you'll be sent a Welcome Pack with all the information you'll need. Within that there is a full packing list. However, if you want to get ahead... Decent solid footwear for outdoor walking Decent footwear for wet outdoor activities (no crocs for Stand Up Paddleboarding, coasteering or canyoning where relevant) Wet shoes/crocs or trainers that you are prepared to get wet are suggested if you're coming wild swimming (they make the walk in kinder). Lightweight clothing such as leggings/shorts/joggers, t-shirt/synthetic top/fleece - We always advise having many layers available to you. Waterproof jacket/trousers (weather depending). Swimwear (and a little wet clothes bag) Wet shoes/crocs or trainers for swimming if relevant Hoodies, jumpers or fleeces Small rucksack Towels - Shower one and swim one Indoor studio shoes if you’d rather have footwear on in the studio. Hat, gloves and scarf (weather depending) Consider what you'll need if one set is drying out... Must haves… Bath towel & towel for activities where relevant Any special food requirements Bottle of water Notepad & pen General suggestions Slippers & PJs Suncream (I’m being hopeful!) Insect repellent Cash for washing machine Most forgotten items: Note pad and pen, waterproofs, towels, swimming stuff inc. shoes, walking boots and trainers.
  • Will I get down time?
    Yes! All our courses and retreats are created to are designed to allow you some free time and reflection time.
  • If I need to, can I miss a day?
    We can't allow people to miss days as it compromises the training not only for yourself but for the rest of the group. However, if you need to do self tapes during the retreat, speak to Steph as she'll always do what she can to support you.
  • Do you provide meals and can you accommodate my dietary requirements?
    When you sign up for a retreat you'll be given the opportunity to inform us of any dietary requirements and medical conditions we should be aware of. In terms of food/meals... Retreats under 2 days: Your food will be provided in line with yours and the groups dietary requirements. Retreats over 2 days: We provide your first meal for your arrival day and a welcome breakfast for your first morning in line with the groups dietary requirements. It is the groups responsibility to put in a group food order for your retreats meals. There is time scheduled in to do this upon arrival however, you may wish to this order through in advance.
  • Do I have to swim?
    Our retreats include optional morning wild swimming and many involve outdoor activities including stand up paddle boarding or tubing. If you are a non or not a confident swimmer, that is ok. You can still take part in the activities and wild swimming. Many non-swimmers who have attended have come to the wild swimming and walked into the water to a height of comfort for them. If you have any concerns or fears, speak to Steph in advance or upon arrival and you can fully discuss your level of comfort in the water.
  • I have additional needs. Can you accommodate them?
    If you feel you have additional needs, contact Steph and we can work through it together.
