Ingestre Hall 2019—Day one.
After a short coach journey, we arrived safely at Ingestre Hall. Those of us who had not been here before were amazed at how beautiful and grand the building was. Once we had been greeted by and introduced to all of the staff, we located our dormitories and began to unpack. We were all very excited to decide which bed we would sleep in and even had to make the beds by ourselves! Following lunch, we got into our creative groups to begin working with our tutors. We have started work on our Arts Awards which is very exciting. After tea, we had some free time which we filled by exploring the downstairs areas in the house and playing lots of games. Some of us got the opportunity to go and visit Ingestre Hall’s ‘WWI Casualty Clearing Station’ where one of the tutors - Felix - gave us lots of information about the war and also gave us the opportunity to explore the artefacts. Following our busy day, we were all very sleepy and were thankful to get tucked up in bed. We’re really looking forward to our week ahead and will let you know what else we have been to very soon!
