Butlins goes child-free for 1960s music fans

EUROPE’S largest domestic holiday centre, the Butlins resort in Minehead, will become a child-free zone at the end of the month.
Only people aged 18 years and older will be allowed to stay during a weekend music festival which runs from January 30 to February 2.
And guests will have to be at least in their 40s to actually remember any of the acts playing at the Festival of the 60s.
The event is part of a series of Big Weekend Breaks being staged by Butlins this year with tickets starting at £63 for the weekend.
Among the big names from the 1960s who will be appearing live at the retro-weekend are Gerry and the Pacemakers (pictured), Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich, Herman’s Hermits, Swinging Blue Jeans, Dave Berry and the Cruisers, The Fortunes, Marmalade, and Brian Poole and the Dreamers.
Tickets can be bought by calling 0845 070 4730 or logging on to
