Things to do


Pause, think, create, celebrate, or savour at Birch with our regular events, workshops, masterclasses, and beyond.

Keep an eye on our weekly events, we’re expanding all the time.

Here’s what we created

Set amongst 200 acres of nature, Birch (Selsdon) takes ‘urban retreat’ to a whole new level. This is a space to do a system reboot. To galvanise and re-energise.


Ready for some R&R?

Weekly classes, either in the Wellness Space, mansion house or in the grounds, will keep you sweating, stretching, and sculpting. The gym is now open and the Wellness Space will be opening in August.

The Lido ( opening soon) has had an Art Deco-inspired makeover and we’ve added a yoga deck to keep it company.



Creative licence

Work with clay in our dedicated pottery studio – where hand-building and taster sessions run daily – take part in a foraging tour, or whip up a storm in our regular workshops and masterclasses.

Want an example? Dive into our monthly plant dye workshop to create a local seasonal colour palette. You’ll use materials grown and harvested from the surrounding landscape, or re-generated from kitchen waste.


Dance the night away

Music and live entertainment is at the heart of Birch (Selsdon). Special guests, regular residents, favourite selectors… You name it, we’ll play it. The only question is which of our dance floors you want to light up.


What about the kids?

Outside you’ve got nature, animals, open spaces and the Lido. Inside you’ve got Birchlings – a kids club with arts, crafts and cabinets full of fun. Our activity schedule changes with the seasons, and school holidays, so there’s always plenty going on. Wander the woods and get hands dirty. Birch (Selsdon) is a playground for all.
