Make the most of your summer holidays

Our short breaks in the School Summer Holidays run from 17 July - 4 September across all three of our seaside resorts.

Our entertainment and activity line-up is second to none this year with everything, day and night, designed with families in mind.

Don't miss the multi-talented showman and former Redcoat Stephen Mulhern who returns with a variety show on every midweek break during the school summer holidays. The Big Top Circus is back on every break, complete with performances from trapeze artists, aerial gymnasts and circus clowns. You can also see Diversity performing live on selected breaks and a spectacular show from the Shaolin Monks throughout the summer at all resorts on midweek breaks – all helping make this a school holiday break to remember.
