The Big Weekends are typically Friday to Monday weekend breaks packed with live music of a particular theme (Scroll down for a guide to the types of themes on offer). Exclusively over 18s only, therefore an ideal break to get away and let your hair down. Expect to hear themed music throughout the day and night, as well as the odd comedy act.
Costumes at the ready! Everywhere you look there will be Psychedelic suits / dresses, Frill Shirts, Flares, GoGo Dresses, Jump Suits, Hippies, Pink Ladies, T-Birds, Pilots/Hostesses, Police/Fire Officers, Army/Navy/RAF, Geeks, Famous Musicians / Celebrities / Movie Characters, Mario Brothers, Bananas in Pyjamas, Neon accessories, Afros, Divas, the list is endless. These weekends have become a tradition for fancy dress as random as your imagination takes you.

Fancy dress guidelines - A big part of the fun on some of the breaks is seeing all of the guests in their incredible fancy dress outfits.  We don't want to be the fun police but please remember when planning your outfits, we have a wide range of team members and guests from all walks of life on our resorts and would hate for you to offend anyone.    All we ask is that you use your common sense when you are planning your costumes.  Here are some pointers... avoid anything that can be seen as racially or sexually offensive; don't wear anything (including T shirts) that has bad language on it; don't dress up as a celebrity / someone who has committed a criminal act; don't use the Butlin's logo or brand on your outfits / T shirts.  If any of these guidelines are not met, you will be asked to return to your accommodation and get changed.
