Great weekend, great music, and great atmosphere. For the most part the music was excellent. Though Butlins need to get their heating on in the showrooms a little earlier, loads of people still had their coats on at 10pm. on the first night. That's when l was warm enough to take mine off !

This is far and away, the best-value folk event in Britain. Great line-up including Bellowhead, excellent 'premier dining plan', reasonable accomodation (for the price) and very friendly and helpful staff. Went last year as well and will return in 2015.

Just returned from Butlins Skegness where 6 of us went for the 60's weekend. We had booked a silver apartment but on arrival had been given a free upgrade to gold. It was spotless with everything you could want for a comfortable stay. On walking into the bedroom it was more like a premier inn room than a typical holiday... More

This was our second Yours Live and most of it was first class but, because there were only half the visitors this year, it lacked atmosphere. The accommodation (gold) was excellent, as was the food although last time we ate in the Yacht Club. The new Deck was excellent so we need not have paid extra, we could have stayed... More

Went on a 1970 s Adult weekend at Skegness in November. The chalet was spotlessly clean & beautifully warm with crisp fresh linen on the bed. We had a twin & double room chalet, & the twin room was very basically furnished, with storage at an absolute premium... 2 beds & a small wardrobe. Couldn't have managed a week in... More

Just returned from a fabulous weekend. Amazing value - £250 for food and board for 2 people and some top class music. You would pay a fortune to see these bands elsewhere. Highlights where Eddi Reader, Bellowhead and Home Service. But I thought I would mention one or two things that did spoil things a little and that could be... More

An excellent range of music from headliners to less known acts. Bellowhead were great as always. The rooms were clean and perfectly adequate. The food was good. The resort well organised and friendly staff. Good value for money

WOW !!! Brilliant from start to finish. From driving onto site and checking in, we had NO COMPLAINTS. Last visited Butlins at Skegness 16+ years ago and goodness , they have upped their game ! Given an unrequested free upgrade to a well appointed apartment , it was beautifully presented and immaculately clean . We included the well priced breakfast... More
