FOOD

As the Ancients knew, good food and drink is crucial to proceedings. We are taking this element seriously: the fabulous Anna Kenyon will be preparing hearty fare to inspire body and mind. Morning coffee will be provided upon arrival both days, as will a hot vegetarian lunch, and afternoon tea on the Saturday.
