3-5th july 2020
SOLID is an annual weekend 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 as a single day event back in 1996 and has grown into an annual full and exciting weekend of activities.
The festival is organised by Scripture Union and a number of partnering agencies and churches 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 excellent camping and 'bunkhouse' facilities as well as a great variety of adventure activities from jet skis to a high ropes course to laser tag. And then on top of that are all the facilities brought to site by the SOLID team for the weekend including cage football, inflatables, a NERF arena, a delicious food court and more...!
For 2020, SOLID will be happening from 5pm on Friday 3rd through to 12:30pm on Sunday 5th July.
To get the full SOLID experience we recommend you stay the whole weekend, but day tickets are available for Friday, Saturday and Sunday if you would rather just dip your toe in the water this time around or would like to come up in place of your regular Friday youth night/Sunday morning service/etc...
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.
Below you can see the programme from 2019. Please note that the 2020 programme will be different, but this gives you an idea of what shape it may take...
And here's the map of the 2019 Festival so you can see how it might all fit together in 2020...
