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.

What a creative week we had! The students from The Link Academy arrived at Ingestre Hall with the difficult theme of Resilience as their task for the week. Typically, the whole week was taken up by encouraging and developing talent and artistic expression that represents what Ingestre Arts is all about. A residential week at Ingestre Hall aims to help people out of their comfort zones and encourage them to engage in and express themselves through the Arts. This week was a brilliant example of Ingestre’s raison d’être. 
With bank holiday Monday starting the week, the children of Greysbrooke Primary descended onto Ingestre Hall for 4 days of yeehaws, shootouts, Hollywood and Broadway. The group arrived in an orderly fashion before being sent on a tour of the building and allowed some time to settle into their surroundings for the week. Once the group had eaten lunch and somewhat acclimatised they split into 4 different art forms with students participating in Drama, Dance, Art, and Music. 
In what was a brilliant first week back from our Easter break, Ingestre Hall hosted the children from the Nishkam Primary Schools, Birmingham and Wolverhampton. The 59 children arrived at the hall having never been here before; the children were full of excitement and energy. 
The Coppice Primary Ingestre Hall 2019 
The Easter holidays have finally arrived. This gives us the perfect opportunity to reflect on the brilliant week we had prior to breaking up. It was the turn of ‘The Coppice Primary’ to venture to Ingestre Hall for their very first arts residential. As you can imagine there were a lot of pre-arrival nerves from both parties with many children leaving home for the first time. With this in mind the results of the 2-day residential are mind blowing. 
Brook Primary, Ingestre Hall 2019 
 
In what was an extremely busy week, Ingestre welcomed the children from Brook Primary School, Stourbridge for a 2 night Arts Residential. The group participated in Dance, Drama, Visual Art and Music workshops during their stay. The theme for the week was time travel, which resulted in some mystical and intriguing work being made. 
Blimey what a week!? 
 
The Children from Rowley Hall Primary came to stay at Ingestre! 
 
The theme for the week was Alice in Wonderland. The children participated in a rotation week with children doing two art forms. Rowley Hall Primary has been coming to Ingestre Hall for over a decade and each year the quality of work is raised to another level! 
This week Ingestre welcomed the children from Ocker Hill Academy to participate in creative workshops that helped the group realise their capabilities in a range of different artforms. The theme for the week was the Ancient Egyptians, which provided the perfect topic for the group to explore their creativity through Visual Art, Dance and Drama. 
Myths and Legends with Coppice Junior 
 
British Legends. 
 
King Arthur, Robin Hood, Dragons, Wizards…. Ingestre had it all. This week Ingestre was host to the wonderful children from Coppice Junior School. The week was action packed full of creativity and fun exploring British myths and legends.

With creative ideas popping in our minds, we were really excited for the theme of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe this week with the children of Moat Farm Primary School. So, after the first Arts Award session of discovering all the other forms of Art we sometimes don’t realize, we set straight to work on creating with the students in our four Arts departments. 
St Peter’s Primary Academy Stonnall 
Theme – India 
 
This week Ingestre Hall was a hive of creativity like never before! The students from St Peter’s Academy participated in a Rotation Week, creating inspiring works in Art, Drama, Dance and Music. 
 
The group expressed great enthusiasm for every aspect of their stay. No matter what the Art form, each student displayed a passionate approach to creativity. The week started with Arts Award inductions, with students completing their Discovery Level by the end of the week. These students left the Hall with more than just a creative flare and inspiration for continuing in the Arts: They now have a recognised Arts qualification and variety of life skills to help push their potential even further.
