Take a break with a Comedy Retreat!

Funny Women

Funny Women

Need to escape your crazy existence?

Are you overworked, overcommitted, and pulled in every direction?  If your to-do list never ends and everyone wants a piece of you, now is the time to book yourself a retreat with a difference.

Join us for an exclusive Women’s Comedy Weekend Retreat, 8th – 11th July!

Set in beautiful North Wales, for the first time ever the comedy scene will meld into the world of wellbeing retreats to create something completely unique. 

For 3 nights and 2 fabulous days you can practice comedy with Funny Women Award winner Suzy Bennett, dance with drag legend Rob Stevens, learn the art of cocktail making – all whilst laughing along with 15 other like-minded people. Indulge in treatments, try laughter yoga, explore the area, relax and have a good time. You deserve it!

Since 2020 life has been tough for all of us, I don’t know about you, but I’ve been just getting through, surviving and it’s felt like all work and no play.  Just recently I spent some time in the company of people who made me laugh out loud, really belly laugh, properly out of control, hiccupping and crying laughter.  It felt amazing, I had forgotten how to do it, and how great it makes you feel.  This is the gift I want to share with you. I want you to relax, indulge and let go, steal a little time for yourself.  Come and escape with like-minded women and remember how to laugh!”

~ Cerys, Your Host.

Featuring the ‘Stand up to Stand Out’ Workshop, delivered by Funny Women’s founder Lynne Parker, this is a retreat like no other. For more details and to book your spot head to the website here.

SPECIAL OFFER: To get all this for the exclusive price of £452 for 2 or more sharing a room email Cerys now at cerys@sunsetandstarsholidays.co.uk

The Mouthy Broads of Amsterdam
