Title **MNTV WEEKEND SPECIAL** Christmas at Calke Abbey - 10 - 12th December

In 2019 we headed to Calke Abbey near Derby for our annual Christmas Weekend and with our usual venue in the Lakes not available in 2021 we hope to be returning to Calke Abbey this December. The House at Calke Abbey is not your average National Trust property it's paintwork is faded and peeling and vast collections of personal belongings are left as they were found. Although we won't be working in the house it has a vast park and it's here will be working. Last time we were there our task was clearing bracken from around young trees, this years task? Well….it's a little too far ahead in Calke's schedule for knowing that but we will likely be working with Ranger Iain, as it gets closer to the weekend, we will of course let you know what that task is.

We will be staying at Home Farm Bunkhouse, Ticknell on the estate at Calke Abbey. The Basecamp holds 14 people and in the evenings should we wish we get the parkland to ourselves so there could be time for a game of Christmas Hide and Seek or getting up close and personal with the wildlife as we will be sharing the estate with; bats, badgers, and deer.

Saturday night we have Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings also Secret Santa presents and silly games.

Please bring your own bedding, your usual work clothes and perhaps something a little special to wear on Saturday night

The price of this weekend will be £20 plus your £5 Secret Santa!
