Here at Ingestre Hall we have a passion for creativity, and making a positive difference to the lives of young people is at the heart of everything we do. Below are the weekly blogs that we post for the groups that stay with us on residentials. We look for inspiration in our day to day lives and believe it is important to recognise and celebrate talent and creativity. As well as this we post about all things Ingestre as we hope to have a close and personable relationship with visitors both past and present.

The Christmas Spirit has really been in out full force here at Ingestre, for our last week of term and our last residential visit of the year from the children and staff of Gilbertstone Primary School. 
It’s such a shame it didn’t snow this week! 
 
We welcomed a small group of delightful children from Lanesfield Primary School. With Christmas fast approaching, we chose a beautiful picture book to study called “Winter’s Child” by Angela McAllister, which had an enchanting story about a boy called Tom, who loved Winter and wanted it to last forever once he had found friendship with the Winter’s Child, and played with all Winter long, until the Spring arrived and the Winter’s Child went home to his father.  
This was a special week. St Johns International school came to visit Ingestre Hall all the way from Belgium. Being an international school there was huge variety and cultural richness within this group. This was a unique opportunity for children from all over the world to use Ingestre Hall as their hub for creativity and expression. 
What a week; a fantastic group of nearly 80 students from Hagley came to Ingestre and experienced an exciting arts programme jam packed with creativity, fun and performance. The theme for the week was conflict, a powerful and relevant topic, linked to the schools curriculum but also to the lives of the children who, in this climate of change, were helped to understand that in order to build a better future, building dialogue and expression through the arts can generate resilience and opportunity. The group tackled the subject with respect, creative intuition and maturity.
