Peredur Eurythmy Campus

The Location

Peredur Eurythmy is situated in the rolling green hills of Sussex, an area of outstanding natural beauty, midway between London and the south coast of England. It is located on the outskirts of the small market-town of East Grinstead, from where it takes just under an hour to reach London by train. On the south coast lies the city of Brighton, where the sea and a diverse community lifestyle attract many visitors. For calm contemplation look no further than the Ashdown Forest, just south of East Grinstead.

Settled in the Ashdown Forest, three miles away, is the village of Forest Row. This is home to England’s flag-ship Steiner Waldorf School – Michael Hall School, the Christian Community Church, Emerson College, and the Tobias School of Art as well as the Peredur Centre for Arts, which offers a diverse programme of events, conferences and short courses. A local branch of the Anthroposophical Society is also active in the area.

In the wider local area there are four organic/biodynamic farms and two market gardens, producing and selling a wide array of food and supplying to local health food shops and further afield.

The Venue

Peredur Eurythmy is based at the Peredur Centre for the Arts (a charity in its own right) and shares the site with other users. On site are four teaching spaces, which have been designed for Eurythmy, a theatre, ancillary spaces and designated student accommodation.

The neighbouring campus is occupied by the Tobias School of Art (link), and students from both colleges share the student accommodation. Students have their own rooms and share bathrooms, a kitchen and lounge. Local shops, within easy walking distance, offer essentials. Students, who do not wish to reside on campus, have the opportunity to rent privately in East Grinstead, Forest Row or other surrounding villages.

Studying at Peredur Eurythmy

The Peredur Centre has been home to Eurythmy since the late 1970’s, when Marguerite Lundgren, the then leader of the London School of Eurythmy decided to move out of the city and settle the training in the countryside.
Historically there has always been a strong collaboration with the other arts, especially music and creative speech. This impulse continues to this day at Peredur Eurythmy, especially as Sigune Brinch is also the coordinator for the Performing Arts Section of the School of Spiritual Science of the Anthroposophical Society in the UK.

The area boasts a rich and eclectic cultural life, much of which is fed by the presence of a wide range of anthroposophical initiatives and institutions. Peredur Eurythmy maintains good relationships with these and other local organisations, who offer us the opportunity to share the fruits of our work with them.

At the same time, through these institutions, a pool of experienced professionals has gathered, which Peredur Eurythmy draws on to teach supporting subjects and to support students individually, if required.

Georgie Howlett also teaches Eurythmy at Michael Hall School. This creates opportunities for Peredur Eurythmy students to collaborate with pupils from Michael Hall School through joint Eurythmy projects for the public. The resulting ‘Winter Festival’ and other productions, have become highly anticipated events in the local calendar.

Our students mostly go to Michael Hall School for their classroom observation and Eurythmy teaching practice.

The Faculty

Sigune Brinch and Georgie Howlett are the main Eurythmy tutors at the Peredur Eurythmy campus. Together with a range of other professionals they provide the 4-Year Vocational Training in Eurythmy and other activities, which Eurythmy UK offers.
