Shows taking place in Centre Stage and Studio 36 are bookable. You'll receive an e-mail 2 weeks before your break starts letting you know when the booking slots for your specific dates have opened*. The lead booker will then be able to book shows and activities for their whole party via the Butlin's app. Shows taking place in Reds on Just for Tots breaks are also bookable.
To ensure full-on fun for everyone, we've put the following booking guidelines in place:
You can pre-book multiple daytime shows, there’s no limit to how many you can see!
You can pre-book a maximum of one evening show, running between 6pm and 9:59pm, for each night of your break.
If you’d like to see more than just your pre-booked evening shows, check the app from 10am each day of your break for any last-minute availability.
Overlapping activities & shows
You won't be able to pre-book additional shows if they overlap. For example, if you have a show booked for 3pm-4pm, you won't be able to book another show that starts at 3:45pm.
Big Top Circus
You can pre-book and pay for our summer Big Top Circus. Show times will be allocated and communicated prior to your arrival. Your allocated time will appear in the app’s wallet section under ‘My Activities’. This makes it easier for you to plan around your allocation.
Shows in Studio 36 are bookable per person.
Shows in Centre Stage are bookable per person.
Shows are freeflow other than on Just for Tots breaks where they bookable per table up until 6th June break where it changes to per person bookings.
Please note: In Studio 36 and Centre Stage, you’ll be sat on a table of up to five guests (this could be with other guests outside of your party) or in theatre-style seating. A table in either venue is not guaranteed.
