***We still have a few places left for this wonderful weekend - this weekend won't be making an appearance in 2020, so if you fancy joining us, this is the time to do it!***
Join us for a wonderful weekend in a stunning former Jacobean Mansion House in the heart of the Country helping us to mark the start of our Christmas festivities.
Ingestre Hall is a beautiful building in acres of lovely grounds with Capability Brown landscaped gardens where we can while away our weekend. The beauty of the building has to be seen to be believed, with the stunning yellow room, the fabulous Great Hall with its magnificent staircase which will be the venue for our festive Saturday night party, the American themed diner and many other charming rooms for us to party, dine and relax in.
We have a full schedule planned with a lovely Friday evening buffet with plenty of opportunity to socialise with your Spice friends and make new friends too. You can play table tennis, air hockey, table football and pool. Or maybe you would prefer to join us in the cinema room where we can laze around on bean bags, grab ourselves some popcorn and watch films chosen via our Jacobean Mansion facebook page. Don't forget to wear your most colourful Christmas sweater as there are bound to be lots of photo opportunities as you catch up with your Spice friends.
On Saturday after your cooked breakfast you can join us for a walk or join in a festive workshop included in the weekend or join in on a festive quiz. We are just a few miles away from the fabulous Cannock Chase - an area of outstanding natural Beauty, so it would be a shame not to take advantage. Or you may wish to bring your bike and make your way over to the Chase where there are a variety of trails from easy peasy to very tricky & strenuous!
If none of these options appeal, there will be plenty of board games on hand to try your hand at and the fabulous Shugborough Hall is a short drive away.
Saturday night sees us dressing up for our party night with Spice favourite DJ Max who will play all our favourite music and keep us dancing in to the wee hours. The theme for the Saturday night is 'All That Glitters' so if you don't want to do festive fancy dress please be sure to wear something glittery e.g. tinsel, sequins, spray glitter etc. We will be serving a lovely sit down meal with a vegetarian alternative - if we don't know already, please let us know in advance if you have any dietary requirements.
On Sunday if you still have any energy left, there will be the option to join a walk before making your way home after another fabulous Spice weekend. I mean, how often do you get chance to stay in a Jacobean Mansion House?
The accommodation is in spacious heated dormitories & suites with single beds (not bunks) ranging from rooms for 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 & 11 in large, spacious rooms with all bedding is supplied. Some rooms have ensuite and for those that don't there are plenty of showers and toilets dotted around the dormitory corridors. The rooms will be allocated on a first come first served basis and where possible will take in rooming requests but be aware that if you are in a small room and want someone to join you, it is more than likely that you will be moved to a bigger room to accommodate the extra person(s).
We really hope you can join us to kick start the party season in a truly glorious location. We can accommodate up to 100 for this weekend so it will be a truly festive weekend break to remember - see you there!
