Looking at booking as unfortunately the band has entered Butlins. I'm playing Saturday, daughter will be playing Saturday and Sunday in youth section. There's an offer on Butlin's website '50% off all breaks and an additional £60 off per booking' (Selected weekends) Thought I'd have a look. They are advertising 16 weekend breaks at Butlins Skegness, the band contest weekend only offers 20% off, and would you believe it, it is the SECOND most expensive weekend break listed. The most expensive being the New Years Weekend. Another factor that really annoys me, 3 night break, those of us who have children cannot stay the 3rd night as school beckons on Monday morning. So as it stands, a £265 self catering chalet, which we would use for 2 nights, Butlins are getting a third of that £88 for nothing. Entertainment is boring (who wants to listen to Brass bands when you've been playing yourself in a contest), about the only thing for the kids is the pool, anything else you pay well over the odds for. Beer is poor and over priced, and the choice of food in the restaurants is limited. Oh, and if you don't want to stay there, £16 a head per day to play in a contest !!!! Considering we would have to go in two days, for the 3 of us attending £96. Rant over for the time being !!
