  1. The RNC Have a Go weekend is a free event for young people aged 13 to 17 years.
  2. The weekend runs from 11am on Saturday and finishes at approximately 3pm Sunday. It involves one overnight stay in free accommodation for the young person and any accompanying adults.
  3. We would expect the young person to be accompanied by one responsible adult. Additional adults are welcome, as are siblings.
  4. We find that young people have a great time, enjoy getting to know each other and making new friends. Their programme is completely separate from that of the accompanying adults, which gives the latter an enjoyable break and the young people a taste of independence.
  5. The Adults Programme involves several useful Information and advice sessions, and adults are free to enjoy their spare time, maybe exploring Hereford city centre.
  6. All attendees are provided with Saturday lunch, an evening meal on Saturday evening with breakfast and lunch on Sunday.
  7. The young people’s programme often includes an off-campus activity, whilst the adults remain on the College grounds.
  8. Our experienced support team will make sure the young people are kept safe and entertained throughout their stay.
