Joint Annual Holiday 2018 – Frank Chapman Centre, Birmingham

Frank Chapman Centre

Monday 2nd April – Saturday 7th April 2018

In 2018 we returned to The Frank Chapman Centre at Bewdley, near Birmingham.

The Frank Chapman Centre

This centre has only been used by the company once before, in 2015, and both the boys and the staff have had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and found the centre to be of excellent quality. The centre is a large self-catering purpose built facility within its own extensive grounds. We will have exclusive use of The Frank Chapman Centre and its facilities; which includes a large High-Ropes course, Archery, and much more. As in previous years this was a joint holiday with the Juniors and Company Section, although each section still ran their own programme of activities.

4x4 Driving Experience

Dining Room

Activities for the holiday can be seen below. As normal we used the centre as a base to visit attractions such as Alton Towers Theme Park, Quad Biking, Segway Riding and even Rifle Shooting. As well as more local activities such as a Safari Park, Swimming, Ten-Pin Bowling and a visit to the cinema.
