Big Events - Coming Soon At Plas y Brenin


Sometimes you just want to have a weekend away and enjoy yourself by doing something a little different.
On our big weekends you'll be surrounded by people who want to do just that. The focus here is all about the people you meet and the activity you enjoy together with very little emphasis placed on formal learning.

Unlike our usual courses, on these weekends we dedicate the entire centre to the event, which means we can keep the cost low and you can be sure you'll have plenty in common with other visitors.

So why not join us in the beautiful mountains of Snowdonia for a weekend that will take you far away from the day to day routine and leave you relaxed, refreshed and revitalised.

Take look at what's on offer below but remember to check back every now and again because we regularly release new big and 'different' events.
