Please email email@example.com who will arrange payment to be made for additional cost to next level.
Do you offer refunds on tickets?
No. But tickets are transferable to an alternative name. Please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any name changes so that we can ensure we stay in touch with the correct person.
Do I need to book my preferred workshop?
As a boutique, intimate one-day festival with plenty of space at the Hilton Avisford Park Hotel we do not need you to pre-book your preferences. We encourage our guests to be led by their hearts and intuition on the day.
The only workshop that has limited availability due to materials is the Macrame Earring making workshop which has max capacity of 30. If you are super keen to do this workshop we do recommend queuing asap for this one.
Is the schedule 100% finalised?
The timetable is finalised, but we are not responsible for any changes that may need to be made due to unforeseen circumstances.
It is subject and likely to change at any time.
Will I be able to attend every workshop on the timetable?
You can attend one workshop per time slot so in theory you can attend a maximum of 7 plus attend the opening & closing ceremonies and communal lunch time.
However we encourage you to plan to miss at least one workshop slot to give you time to absorb RESTFEST – the grounds are tranquil, the women are wise and wonderful and the market place cries out to be explored leisurely. Theres so much more to RESTFEST than dashing about trying to squeeze everything in.
Our 2019 timetable offers 4 intention paths so you can plan a day that suits your unique needs – choose a path of JOY, INSPIRATION, EMPOWERMENT or REST – or mix it up depending on your mood. You choose your own blend of RESTFEST workshops and experiences to create your own meaning and benefits.
POP-UP SPA BOOKINGS
If you have booked a RETREAT or GOLDEN GODDESS TICKET then we will be in touch approx 2 weeks before the event with a link to book your appointment via your email address that you booked your ticket with.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING CASH FOR?
The Hilton Avisford Park chefs are providing a festival food inspired experience with a varied range of lunch time dining options. From Tacos & Raw Salads, Curries & Noodles, Paella & Risottos – we’ve got all tastes and dietary requirements covered.
Full menu choices will be released closer to the time but please budget £7-£10 per dish for your lunch. No other food may be consumed on the hotel grounds.
Lunch will be payable directly to the food stalls during a 2 hour lunchtime dining opportunity.
Bar Water will be available freely throughout the venue so please bring along a reusable water bottle but you can also get drinks at the bar. Soft drinks, hot drinks and alcoholic drinks.
Wellness & Wonder Expo
So many gorgeous goodies and luscious services available here. We recommend you find time in your day to browse. Best to bring cash in-case traders don’t have card machines – there are some wonderful shopping stalls too – Henna artist, Jewellery, Clothes, Yoga teachers, Life Coaches, Health Coaches and Clinics, Retreats, Crystal water bottles Natural and organic skincare, Essential Oils, Homewares, Self development books and subscription boxes.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
- Spending money for lunch & treats. An open mind and a big smile.
- Journal or notepad & pen, water bottle.
- A snuggly jumper and/or blanket for chillaxing. (A cloak room is available to store bulky belongings)
- A yoga mat if you have one
PLANNING YOUR DAY
Print your timetable in advance but be sure to pick up your programme on the day as that will have the most up-to-date schedule within.
We have colour coded intention paths for the day with options to experience JOY, EMPOWERMENT, REST or INSPIRATION depending on what you need most in that moment. You can of course mix it up – you don’t need to stick to one colour all day.
Please be prepared to be flexible in your choices. Disappointment is inevitable at a festival unless you want to spend the whole time queuing. The fun is ending up somewhere you didn’t expect to. Be free to be attracted to where your curiosity leads and try new things.
Also we HIGHLY recommend not over scheduling – the workshops run back to back to squeeze as much as we could into the day to offer choice but that doesn’t mean you should do it all!
Our main hope for you busy woman is that you feel rested after RESTFEST. Take the time and space to make this happen.
Skip a workshop or two. Hang out, connect with new people, soak up the surroundings, browse the Wisdom & Wonder expo and chill out in the gardens (weather permitting!!)
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
LAYERS! Its OCTOBER! 65% of our festival is indoors but 35% is outdoors in tents!! IN OCTOBER!!!! Please dress accordingly!
Wear whatever your you are comfortable in! Clothes you can stretch and move in for the movement, yoga and Qoya classes. You can always get changed should you wish to.
If you wish to to take part in Bounce & Burn – Gym gear is recommended!
We loved the bright colourful clothes you all wore last time – Especially purple – so on brand!! They looked fabulous in our photos! Extra points for FLOWERS IN YOUR HAIR TOO!!
Please be aware of weather forecast and dress accordingly. We can’t control the weather. Lots of activities are inside but we also have three festival tents and lunch being served outside so please dress like you are attending a festival in October! Warm layers will be needed!!
We are really hoping for a dry day but can’t guarantee it obvs! Last time it poured down and things got rather soggy and chilly.
We recommend warm COLOURFUL layers and sun dancing between now and then!
PHOTOS & VIDEO
- We will have a professional photographer and videographer on site throughout the day and the uflourish team will also be capturing magical moments on their camera phones. We hope to use some of these images as future promotional material. Please make Naomi or MJ aware before the day, if you’d prefer not to be photographed or have your image published. By participating in RESTFEST we will assume that you agree to this unless you email us otherwise.
- We are also running a contest to win two free festival tickets to our next RESTFEST for the best photo taken at RESTFEST and the RESTFEST challenge which you’ll find details of in the printed guide to RESTFEST on the day.

MOTHERS at RESTFEST
Can I bring my child?
RESTFEST is aimed towards an audience of women.
Girls aged 13-17 may attend in the company of a family member / carer.
Babes in arms (non walking) babies are welcome on the agreement that if they are unsettled you move away from any talks/workshops/relaxation zones. The grounds are large to take baby away for a walk. Please note that we do not have any official baby facilities as we’d encourage you to take a break for the day and attend childfree if possible! We know that’s not always realistic so we are prepared to flexible so that you can benefit from RESTFEST too.
We are considering launching some teen tickets for age 13-16 year old girls. Some of the content might be “adult” so we’d ask you to judge your daughter’s maturity accordingly.
Please let us know if a teen (reduced price) ticket would be of interest to your daughter. email@example.com
Is the event just for mothers?
Absolutely definitely not. We are celebrating all our perfectly imperfect selves at any stage of woman-hood.
