A Place to be Real Together

Open Space... with a hint of celebration

Your flexible time in community (with TJ's musical birthday)


Thursday 30th May to Sunday 2nd June 2024


Space is available on this event! :-D


May and June are simply the most gorgeous months in Dorset. Will you come and share their meeting point with us?

Open Space is just that - your opportunity to be in community with others but shape your own activities. All within a lightly structured programme of meals and chapel gatherings.

On the Saturday we are planning a musical celebration of some sort - ceilidh, concert, jam session? Details to be confirmed. This will be marking a 'big' birthday for Othona's warden, Tony Jaques, when we hope more of his local friends will be able to come along too.. 

Tony says: "I've spent most of my life avoiding any fuss at all about my birthday. Even swearing colleagues to secrecy at times! This year, with some trepidation, I'm trying a less secretive approach. You are welcome to book for this Open Space if you don't know me at all, but I'm hoping to see some good friends too.

"When I asked myself what I'd enjoy most, the answer came back: "live music (at Othona, not a gig elsewhere)". So I'm excited to think that will somehow happen."
