Staffordshire's Trentham Estate has been running a series of interactive survival skills events for families, branded under The Dangerous Book for Boys name.

In the spirit of the book, the events - which will run at weekends until the end of August - teach hands on survival skills and how to live with nature. They include constructing a den, fire building, foraging for food, finding north and making tools, all under the supervision of trained experts.

Prominent coverage has been given in the regional and local papers, as well as on radio and in national newspapers.

The events have been oversubscribed every weekend so far during the programme's run.

"The Dangerous Book for Boys events have been running for several weeks now and are proving to be immensely popular," said Mike Herbert, director of the Trentham Estate. "The partnership is a UK first and as an association really fits in with the Trentham experience and what we offer."

Charlie Donaldson, joint MD of Rocket, added: "From an early stage we were keen to bring the Dangerous Book for Boys experience to a venue that could do it justice. Trentham has proved the perfect partner."
