Welcome to Thornycroft Hall

Thornycroft Hall is a conference centre that holds spiritual and cultural activities throughout the year. All spiritual activities are entrusted to the Opus Dei Prelature. Thornycroft hosts activities for people of different ages and walks of life. These include seminars and conferences on cultural and spiritual topics, family development programmes, sports and activity weekends for young people, retreats and days of recollection. Thornycroft Hall is owned by the Siddington Trust Limited (registered charity no 282339).

We have events for people of all ages


A retreat is a time spent away from your ordinary occupation, when you can reflect on how you live your faith in your everyday work, with your family and with other people.


Recollections take place twice a month for women and once a month for secular clergy. These few quiet hours are an ideal opportunity for personal prayer and reflection on different aspects of Christian life.

For women

For secular clergy


Thornycroft hosts conferences that support the Catholic faith and culture across the north of England. Participants explore ways of making a practical impact on the heart of civil society. Conferences are held for the laity and the clergy.
