1st-3rd july
running and not turning back



SOLID is an annual festival for 8-17 year olds that brings together hundreds of children and young people from across the South East of England to discover and worship Jesus while taking part in all kinds of adventure, creative and sporting activities. It began back in 1996 and after going online in 2020, pausing in 2021 we are now back for something new in 2022.

The festival is organised by Scripture Union, Red Balloon Foundation, Kick London and the Diocese of Chelmsford and is open to any children's/youth group from any denominational background to attend.

We are pleased to be returning to the amazing Stubbers Adventure Centre (RM14 2TY), only 10 minutes from M25 J30 on the border between London and Essex, close to the Dartford Crossing.

The site boasts a great variety of adventure activities that have all been adapted to be in line with current government guidance and COVID secure. And then on top of that are all the facilities brought to site by the SOLID team for the weekend including fantastic sports activities, inflatables, a NERF arena, delicious food court and more...!




We are delighted to be running the full weekend from the 1st-3rd of July 

If you've been to Solid before you can expect all the same classics you know and love!



At SOLID, we give children and young people time to spend with their friends, leaders and mentors over a crepe or milkshake; opportunities to enjoy sports, space to be creative and to make use of the amazing adventure activities we have available; and all set alongside the chance to enjoy meeting with God in an exciting new way.

The 2022 program is still coming together so check back soon for an update!

Some small print

Bookings by debit/credit card require immediate payment. Bookings by BACS/Cheque must be paid within ten working days and/or by the pricing deadline (whichever comes first) or they will be cancelled and a £10 administration fee charged.

If the event cannot run due to changes to COVID19 restrictions then full refunds will be offered. Unfortunately we cannot offer refunds if individuals or family groups are instructed to self-isolate by NHS Track & Trace.

We know this past year has been hard for many families and many churches who might love to come to SOLID but cannot afford it. If this is you, please contact hello@solidfestival.org.uk as we do have the ability to make concessions depending on individual circumstances; we never want money to be a barrier to people connecting with Jesus.
