2024, Public Events, Retreats

Calling all lovers! Following a sold out national tour of their show ‘Love Sermon’, award winning performers Clementine Ford and Libby O’Donovan are hosting the first of their Witness Weekends.  The great loves of our lives are not necessarily those we share our beds with but those who witness us, and give us the gift of witnessing them in return. This February, Clementine and Libby invite a small number of people to join them for a summery weekend of songs, writing and joyful witnessing of each other. Mothers and daughters, best friends, sisters – no matter who your soulmate is, we want them there with you. Over three days and two nights, Clementine and Libby will create a truly unforgettable program that will leave you feeling enriched and full of love. With a gentle balance of structure and free time, guests will have the opportunity to join in workshops on writing, singing and show preparation, as well as present work of their own during a Saturday night ‘Why Not You?’ open stage performance. (Full program provided to attendees after sign up.) All meals will be provided. Let us take care of you as you take care of each other! Numbers are strictly limited, so get in quick! This is one weekend you won’t forget!
