The fun kicks off every single morning with events designed for youngsters such as treasure hunts and detective games – many featuring the parks’ famous cuddly mascots Loopy and Cyril.

Younger and older guests may also be able tours which will appear on various dates at the group’s parks during the summer holidays.

As well as 80’s icon Timmy Mallett – the hilarious star of Wacaday and The Wide Awake Club – parks will also be welcoming Paddington Bear who will host a marvellous marmalade picnic.

The amazing darts gameshow Bullseye will hit the right spot for all ages, and Live Pro Wrestling will be a guaranteed thriller as some of the sport’s craziest characters go head-to-head.

Also booked for park performances are the Candy Crush Show, top comedy names, famous stage musicals, all-action Quasar laser games, and “midnight movies” on a giant outdoor screen.

And guaranteed every night are Park Holidays UK’s glitzy evening cabarets with tor, Britain’s Got Talent and The Voice.

Pitched perfectly for families too are the group’s acclaimed leisure facilities – also free – which include swimming pools and active play areas – with gorgeous beaches just a short stroll away.

Of course, many guests can’t resist dipping into play bingo – and although the stakes might be small, the winnings can be very high indeed.

Park Holidays UK was the first park group to thousands of pounds every night.

Beyond doubt, says Park Holidays UK, this will be the most exciting season for entertainment in its 25-plus year history:

“Many of our attractions and activities command high ticket prices when they take place in the public arena outside our parks,” says Tony Clish, director of Park Holidays UK.

“But here they are all completely free, despite the fact that we have invested over two million pounds this year in bringing them to our parks.

“We are determined to make each season even more amazing than the last,” said Tony.

Stays at Park Holidays UK are also star performers for value, he adds, and the full line-up can be found on the company’s website at
