During a cold and bleak mid January weekend we greatly enjoyed participating in this annual well run event. With traditional roots meeting modern expectations, this Butlins Festival hosts a wide range of brass banding including serious competition and fantastic entertainments. The venue also gives bands people, their families and supporters access to the excellent general facilities making this an excellent... More

I have just (Monday 19th) returned from this. It was my first time visiting this resort, having gone to Minehead in November 2014 for the Madness Weekend and I have to say this visit was definitely the best. Unlike our Minehead experience, there was plenty to do during the day - mornings, afternoons AND evening. There were competitions to watch... More

I have given this break a 5 as the entertainment was top notch. I definitely recommend seeing the pantomime, it was great fun for us all (my mum, and 11 and a 7 year old child and of course myself). As always, the staff were friendly and helpful, including the ones outside on the gate in the cold! The room... More

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.
