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.

You don’t always get what you expect. Trump. Brexit. Who saw it coming? And persistent, at times torrential, rain in June. You didn’t bargain on that when you booked your summer educational visit and bought your shorts and shades, did you?! 
 
However, every cloud (and there are lots around as I write) has a silver lining – if you look hard enough. 
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.  
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.
