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.

Another fantastic week full of talent and creativity. Windsor Park school have been visiting Ingestre for a number of years and each year they come they raise the bar for the next. The theme for the week was based on Charles Dicken's ‘A Christmas Carol’. Students produced astonishing work with Christmas wreaths in Visual Art, festive songs in Music, a unique spin on Scrooge's story in Dance and a classic production in Drama. 
Visiting Schools - Mere Green and Curdworth Primary Schools 
 
A fantastic residential involving the very best in Drama, Music, Dance and Visual Arts. Mere Green and Curdworth Primary schools collaborated to create some unique and memorable pieces of work based on the Gunpowder Plot and Time Travel. The work clearly demonstrated how young people could tune into contemporary issues and news whilst find exciting and new creative ways to express their thoughts and feelings through a variety of art forms. The children should be justifiably proud of their achievements; as one of the tutor’s comments “we were absolutely blown away by the quality of their work and the great array of individualism that the children expressed throughout their stay”. 
Ingestre Remembered 
 
Following on from a project between Ingestre Arts and Windsor Park Middle School about World War I and its impact on the local area, a permanent 
memorial has now been installed as a reminder of the project and was a perfect focus for the school’s Remembrance Assembly on Friday afternoon. 
Produced by our Visual Arts tutor, Heather, the mosaic is nearly a metre and a half wide, and depicts the silhouette of Ingestre Hall and three 
stylised poppies. 
Hart School : October 22nd-26th 
 
This week Ingestre was host to the very talented students from Hart School, Rugeley who had the theme of ‘Blues’ to focus on for their week-long stay with us. All the departments were excited to have such a great theme, so work started straight away planning and preparing for performances later on in the week.
