The Ultimate Voice Retreat with Nic Redman

The Ultimate Voice Getaway is a weekend retreat focusing on reconnecting and exploring your voice in one of the UK’s most relaxing countryside beauty spots

As a professional speaker, you are your business. Whether you’re a voiceover artist, podcaster, presenter, performer or public speaker – this retreat offers you the chance to invest in your career with a long weekend of voice training, as well as the opportunity to relax your body and mind.

Looking after your voice is hugely important when it’s an integral part of your business. Our vocal health needs attention and commitment as much as our physical and mental health. But it has become increasingly difficult to carve out time for self-care, amidst the chaos of our professional lives. 

The Ultimate Voice Getaway has been developed to provide the space for professional self-care. It offers high quality, holistic vocal training in a unique setting that will also nourish your body and mind.

P.S. There are hot tubs.

What is the Ultimate Voice Getaway?

  • 3 nights accommodation in a 4 star bed and breakfast situated in Hadrian’s Wall country on the Cumbrian / Northumberland border. Sharing and single occupancy rooms available.

  • 2 and a bit days of bespoke voice training with internationally renowned vocal coach, Nic Redman.

  • Locally sourced home cooked meals included plus a trip to the local pub (COVID permitting…)

  • Guided walks (and wild swimming opportunities - if you’re brave enough!)

  • On-site bar and hot tubs, if you fancy!

  • Stunning views of the countryside and stargazing under celebrated dark skies
