Newbold Trust is a social enterprise offering a nurturing space for workshop leaders, organizations and individuals who are contributing to making a positive impact in the world. Newbold House, our venue, is run by a team of staff and volunteers committed to nurturing positive change by supporting the many transformative workshops, classes, events and conferences that we host. Our work is committed to open spirituality, good governance through collaborative decision making, connection to nature, education, social justice, personal development, sustainability and regeneration.

People come to Newbold House because they want more than a venue for their workshops and events. They want to feel at home, relaxed and nurtured. They want a place where change can happen naturally within themselves and their organizations.

Newbold House also runs regular in-house programmes and events on connecting to nature, regenerative systems and education for positive change.

Newbold believes in food awareness. We try to think about the impact food has on our lives and others in terms of our health and the environment.  We source all of our fruit and vegetables locally and support local producers when possible. We buy mostly organic produce when possible.

Newbold aspires to be more sustainable in all its practices.

Newbold Trust is a supporter of the Living Wage.
