Cheers as Devon park’s new show-stoppers take the stage
SIX sensational entertainment artists gained a unanimous “Yes!” vote from cheering staff at East Devon’s Ladram Bay Holiday Park this spring.
The talented team staged a special preview of their 2019 shows for employees at the park’s annual conference as the business prepared to open for the new season.
Ladram Bay says its entertainment line-up is stronger than ever this year, and will once again be relying almost exclusively on shows produced in-house.
The two male and four female entertainers are employed full-time throughout the season at the park, and help provide a raft of day-long diversions for youngsters and grown-ups.
Staff at Ladram Bay – which number around 170 in peak season – previewed the different nightly musical shows which holiday guests will enjoy over the coming months.
The performances were given at the annual get-together of employees which also included team-building exercises and an inspirational talk from Rob Baxter, director of rugby at Exeter Chiefs professional rugby union club.
Ladram Bay, which last year marked its 75th anniversary under the ownership of the Carter family, says the conference has a valuable role at the start of the holiday year.
“It’s an important occasion because it’s a rare chance for us all to come together just before the park gets into full swing,” said Ladram Bay director and family member Zoe House.
“As well as getting to know each other better, we also have the opportunity to talk about our shared values, and how we can all help to give guests the best experience possible.
“We recruit the majority of our staff from surrounding areas, and their local knowledge can also be very helpful to families wanting to explore the region.
“I’m also delighted that the training we provide has opened the doors for many of our staff to successful careers in the leisure and hospitality industries,” added Zoe.
Zoe says that the huge investment made by the park in five-star facilities has helped to ensure many repeat visits, and is often praised by guests in reviews.
This year’s offering includes clubs, games and activities for families throughout the day, as well as the professionally staged evening entertainment in the park’s Three Rocks complex.
There is also a swimming pool, a recently opened Splash Zone with interactive water features, and an indoor climbing wall with instruction and a range of different challenges.
