Because of the Covid-19 pandemic we are sadly having to cancel our 2020 residentials, both in the UK and in Germany.

Further dates for 2021 will follow. It is planned to hold two in Germany (April and August – see Events page) and two in the UK (dates to follow).

We are announcing a new venue for 2020, Knowle Manor in Somerset. Sadly, Buckland Hall will no longer be available as we understand it is being sold at the end of 2019.

Knowle Manor is a lovely old manor house situated in a very beautiful area in the UK county of Somerset in the south west of England. Knowle Manor estate sits within the Exmoor National Park, close to the medieval village of Dunster with its National Trust castle, and a few miles from the coast. The gardens and grounds are lovely, there is a lake and a river running through the grounds. There is also an indoor swimming pool and lots of other activities available in the surrounding area, including of course walking directly from the estate grounds.

We hope you will join us there.

GERMANY - CANCELLED 

Please read the following update:

As the pandemic is unfortunately still prevalent, we have reluctantly decided to cancel this year’s Residential in Kisslegg. At the time of writing it appears that travelling, and gatherings of large groups of people, still, unfortunately, offer too many possibilities of infection. We are very sad about this because, as with every year, we were looking forward to spending some nice days with everyone!

 

Here is the date for Kisslegg next year: August 29 to September 2, 2021.

 

We even had the idea to possibly offer a second, smaller, residential next year in March or April. Please let Marianne know as soon as possible (info@tonyparsons.de) if you are interested, then we will try to plan it.

Sonnenstrahl Seminarhouse in Kisslegg (click here for their website) is a venue in which we have been running our residential events for several years, and it is a favourite for many people.

It is situated in a quiet rural area and close to the Alps. There is an indoor swimming pool, a sauna, and lots of outdoor sitting and eating areas . . . ideal for a Summer event.

 

Summer:  Sunday August 16 to Thursday August 20 - CANCELLED 

(Please see the website for location and travel information)

Please note

The residential in Kisslegg will be administered as usual by Marianne Nentwig (email at info@tonyparsons.de).

Information and Booking Form will also be available from www.tonyparsons.de (click here).
