Bringing a group to the Centre

Planning on visiting the Centre in the company of friends, family or colleagues?

We have a number of options from an informal visit to a full day event.

*Please note that due to COVID restrictions, some of these may not be currently available.

Casual visits

Everyone is welcome to visit the Centre, and small groups of up to six may book a casual visit to see where Dr. Bach lived and worked and explore the house and garden. We have a shop where you can buy remedies, books and various other related items and souvenirs of your visit, and you may also want to treat yourselves to a cup of tea or coffee, and a tasty snack or light lunch in our café, Nora’s Kitchen.

During your visit you will have the chance to see many examples of Dr. Bach’s hand-made furniture throughout the house, sit in one of his chairs in his consulting room, and learn about the history of his work and the Centre by visiting our museum rooms which are filled with historical artefacts.  This is a self-guided tour so you have the time to look around at your own pace.

While you are in Brightwell-cum-Sotwell, you may like to take a walk around the village and to the church, a short walk from the Bach Centre, where Dr Bach is buried.

You can book a casual visit via our bookings calendar which can be found here.

Bach Centre Experiences – half-day group visits:

These Experience Days can be arranged for groups of six or more people – *please see below if your group exceeds twelve.

We have welcomed groups from colleges, therapy centres, health food retailers, gardening societies, walking groups, the Women’s Institute and many others interested in the remedies.

  • A half-day Experience would typically last for about two to three hours – but of course you are welcome to stay longer to enjoy the garden and look around the area, and visit Nora’s Kitchen, the Bach Centre’s café for tea or coffee, or enjoy a light lunch.
  • The Experience includes a 25-minute video on the history of Dr. Bach and the Centre, a guided tour of the Mount Vernon house, and an introductory talk on the remedies presented by a Bach Centre expert.
  • You will also have an opportunity to ask questions and have access to a set of remedies so you can make up your own personal mix to take home.

*Groups of more than twelve may be accommodated by special arrangement and will be split into smaller groups due to space limitations (maximum group size is 24).

Price is £25 each which includes a cup of tea/coffee on arrival.  Please contact us for more information.

**If you cancel within a week of a planned event we may make a cancellation charge of up to 50% of the cost. If you cancel earlier we will refund in full.

Private two-day Level 1 course for your group

For those who would like to arrange a date for a Private Level 1 Course, please contact us with your preferred dates and for our availability.  You can read what a Level 1 course involves here but in a ‘nutshell’ it is a two day course* and covers all the basics of Dr. Bach’s work: we guide you through each of the 38 remedies, the history of Dr. Bach’s discoveries, an introduction to the philosophy behind his work, the process of making remedies and how to prepare your own mix.

Price for a group of up to eight is £1700, with £200 for each additional participant, up to a maximum group total of twelve.

Therefore, the total cost for the whole group can reduce the price per person if you are able to organise a group of more than eight.

*Please note these courses are held on weekdays only.

*The fee includes VAT and is subject to change. It does not include accommodation and meals. If you cancel an agreed booking less than four weeks before the start date the fee is non-refundable. If you cancel earlier we will refund you in full.

Bespoke one-day workshops

We can also arrange to have a specialist teacher come to the Centre to run a one-day event just for your group.

If your group already know the remedies quite well they might prefer to focus on Dr Bach’s philosophy, or on practice issues such as selecting for animals, or working with challenging clients.

The exact options available will depend on which teachers are available on the days you want to come. We can also try to find teachers who can run events in other languages.

We will issue a Bach Centre certificate to you if the event has been approved by us under the BC-ACE scheme; other events may be certificated by the trainer.

The cost of a one-day event comprises two elements:

  1. Bach Centre will charge your group £185* to book the Mount Vernon training rooms and support services.
  2. The teacher will charge you a teaching fee.**

The total cost is dependent in part on the teacher’s costs, travel times etc.  The minimum group size is six, and the maximum number is twelve.  Costs will be per group so the cost per person will depend on the group size.

For more information email us a list of day(s) when your group would like to come to the Centre and an idea of what topics might be of interest we’ll take it from there.

*The Bach Centre fee includes VAT and is subject to change. It does not include accommodation and meals. If you cancel an agreed booking less than four weeks before the start date the fee is non-refundable. If you cancel earlier we will refund you in full.

**You will pay the teacher’s fee directly to the teacher. The teacher’s own standard terms including his or her own cancellation policy will apply.
