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.

What to expect ...

Festival of the 60s

Kinky boots, mini skirts, beehives and Beatles cuts at the ready. Swinging sounds from 60s giants The Troggs, Marmalade, Herman's Hermits, Union Gap and more.

We Love the 70s

Butlins brings the big, bold and brash Glam Rock era back in all its stomping glory. Relive the days when Wizzard, Slade and the Quo ruled. Rock out to tribute acts Abba Rival and 'TooREX' and strut your outrageous stuff in sky-high platforms and head-to-toe glitter.
