We all experience stress from time-to-time, it’s part of life. Students from BA (Hons) Creative Events Management want to help change this with Retreat Yourself.

Part of the BA (Hons) Creative Events Management (CEM) students’ final Major Project, Retreat Yourself is designed to be a therapeutic one-day wellbeing event to promote the importance of relaxing and de-stressing from our busy lives. Their joint vision is to – ‘promote being more mindful of ourselves and the world around us in order to live in a happier and healthier environment.’

All profits from the tickets sold will go towards the Marine Conservation Society, whose pivotal work helps sustain the future of our seas and oceans.


Retreat Yourself takes place at Ocean Beach Hotel & Spa on the 29th April, with morning and afternoon slots available. You’ll be treated to:

  • a 45-minute yoga class,
  • freshly-made smoothies,
  • a product-making workshop with Lush (make your own bath bomb AND face mask),
  • an introductory workshop on mindfulness and how it can help you deal with stressful and challenging situations,
  • and a Re’Treat’ tote bag worth over £20, containing healthy FREE goodies from companies including Jimmy’s Iced Coffee, Dorset Cereals, Indie Bay Snacks and Emily Crisps.
