After searching long and hard for a suitable outdoor venue for our annual ‘drumfest’ weekend, I finally found Stanley Head OEC.
To say it’s perfect for us is an understatement. We hold drumming workshops during the day, party round huge campfires at night and hold band performances in the meadow. The setting is beautiful and facilities are fabulous.
On the last day we take part in non drumming activities such as canoeing on the lake, walking the high wire challenge or try our hand at archery etc. 2014 will be our 3rd year at Stanley Head and I can’t praise Adam and the staff highly enough. Nothing is too much trouble to ask and we are always made to feel welcome with Center staff often joining in with the fun, whilst still retaining a professional presence. Accommodation is either in the comfortable bunk barns or camping in the grounds to provide a varied price range to suit everyone’s pocket. Sue and the catering staff ensure we are well fed and again nothing is too much trouble.
Our Drumfest is growing, we began with 40 adults and this year we expect around 80-100. I really believe the wonderful venue and attitude of the staff has a great deal to do with the popularity of our event. I just wish we could do it once a month!
