What to bring: Indoor Catered
Even those on the indoor catered option need to bring a few things. Make sure you have your own sleeping bag, a single mattress sheet, pillowcase, towel and toiletries.
At registration, find out your dining room – Quinta Hall or Severn Lodge – and room number. You are allocated a washing-up slot during the week to help make Forum run smoothly and cleanly.
Late summer nights in the Shropshire countryside are dark, so bring a torch for when the lights go out. Everyone should bring their own sleeping bag, towel, toiletries, Bible, notebook and cash for books and the offering. It also gets pretty cold in the evenings, so although you’re staying indoors, bring a warm jumper or two and perhaps a blanket for wrapping around yourself as you chat under the stars with a Hot Chocolate Mountain from our Relay Café.
When you’re packing, imagine five days of glorious sunshine and five days of rain… and then pack for both. We’re talking wellies and sun-cream; umbrellas and sunglasses; raincoats and shorts.
Top tip: Please bring your own reusable water bottle to fill up at taps or at meals throughout the week. Dehydration is not our friend!
