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 week before half term can be a frantic one to say the least however, this week, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Ingestre was host to a shared residential with both Ferndale and Hanbury creating some incredible work. 
 
The theme for the week was Animals and Habitats, leaving the creative licence wide open for the group to explore. 
After a quick change around on Wednesday, it was time to welcome the children and Staff of Stockton Heath Primary School Warrington to Ingestre. 
 
The children were very excited to get started, so following a quick lunch and tour, we set to work on our theme of Wonderful Water. With ideas flowing, the children were quickly able to start devising and learning stage directions, learning choreographing techniques and trying a variety of styles and new media; planning and brainstorming their ideas for their performances. 
 
With such a broad theme, our tutors were inspired in lots of different ways; the sharing was going to be exciting! 
Forty kids, a four century year old house and lots of arts and crafts. What could possibly go wrong? Well, thanks to the fabulous staff and facilities of Ingestre Hall, Stafford, absolutely nothing as the students of both St. John Plessington, Bebington, and St. Mary’s Catholic College, Wallasey – both schools being on Wirral, Merseyside – made full, creative use of the state-of-the-art facilities on offer for three days and two nights. 
St Leonard’s Frist school 
 
A brilliant first week back. This week Ingestre was host to a small group from Staffordshire. With just 17 children, St Leonard’s were able to have Ingestre all to themselves. The groups theme for the week was ‘Wind in Willows’, focusing on expressing this through Drama and Visual Art.
