Escape the 9-5 at a Butlins Big Weekend. Our breaks give you the perfect excuse to get away with your friends for a few days of live music, good food and relaxation beside the sea.
We’ve got every taste in music covered so whether you’re a disco diva or prefer the sounds of the swinging 60s, we’ve got a brilliant line-up of themed weekends for you. As well as live performances from a huge selection of original artists and tribute bands, you’ll also find a great choice of restaurants and bars where you can relax and catch up with your friends or dance into the wee hours. And because all of our resorts are situated right next to beautiful beaches, when the weather’s good you can just sit back and enjoy the sunshine (and when it isn’t you can pamper yourself in our lovely spas!).
It’s the decade that spawned the non-stop rave and had you rocking out to indie, bouncing to Britpop, and blowing your whistles to techno. Relive the party with 90s legends Chesney Hawkes, Angie Brown, 911, and Anita Doth from 2 Unlimited, plus brilliant tribute acts like Definitely Mightbe as Oasis and Complete Madness. Don’t forget your glow stick!
