An unforgettable week of fun, friendship & faith. Ashdown Forest has moved to Foremarke Hall near the Peak District. Our days are packed full of sport, craft, swimming, a day at Alton Towers and various other activities or, if you prefer, you can put your feet up and chill out in beautiful surroundings. On top of all this, there is the chance to learn more of God in a relaxed, pressure-free environment, through our meetings, workshops and worship. A great week will be had by everyone!
The Location :
Foremarke Hall school is a truly beautiful site, with its very own stately home, lake and woodland! Added to this there is a large swimming pool, great sports hall and newly built dining room, which has won architectural awards! It's also really easy to get to, only 15 minutes from the M1 and with a number of stations nearby. It's like living in Downton Abbey but more fun! Sleeping in dormitories.
The Activities and The Programme:
Our great team of leaders will lay on a host of activities throughout the day from sports to craft to music workshops to outdoor challenges. Of course, if you want to take things easy, you can do that too and just enjoy the wonderful surroundings. Also, we'll be spending a day at Alton Towers, with the chance to try the high-octane rides at the park, but if this isn't your thing, there are plenty of other slightly less adrenaline-filled rides. Our late-night entertainment is always a highlight and the themed party on the last night is a great way to finish the week. From the moment you get up, to late night entertainment at the end of the day, there is always something to do.
We've a well-established team of leaders from all across the country. They bring a host of talents and skills and are committed to everyone having a great holiday.
