Uh, the announcement come a bit too late for getting the 10% discount. I’ve not been there before, though. I wonder what it’s like? Telling from the Butlins website that’s a children’s and family resort, it appears. Is this particular event targeted at that same audience or will it be more “adult”?
Was there last year and already booked for this year get in
AWESOME – there is no way i am missing this !! Last year was fantastic, roll on November xx
Happy days….Wouldn’t miss this for the world after experiencing what can only be described as THE BEST WEEKEND EVER last year….A real must for anyone wanting a good weekend
Only 9 and a bit months to go – yaaaayy!
Would like to see some more ska orientated bands this year if poss…especially some of the fellow 80’s legends?
went last year it was brill deffo be going again would not mess it for the world
Take my final exams in June this year, so hopefully i’ll have passed which means no exams in December which means i can make it this year!!!! Fingers crossed
wife took me last year for my fourtieth. i was hanging on sunday at apartment she went for a walk with friends and bumped into suggs. Gutted. don’t miss it.
All booked cant wait.. It was a blinding weekend last year. But would have to agree with Ashley be good to see some more Ska bands on the line up..See you all in nov, btw its my birthday as well.. What a birthday pressie.
In this year …. No mistakes this year !!!!!!!!!!
Already booked as last years event was easily the BEST WEEKEND of my life, and we met and had a drink with Chrissy Boy.. quality. Looking forward to other acts being announced.
We have booked again for 2012 after a great time last year. Please could we have the darts again ……its was great entertainment with manly and mardle. We had 2 top afternoons with the comedy and darts in Reds.
this is bonkers!
Defo goin again this year as I go to all of your concerts and weekends but must agree would be ace if there were more ska bands x
Fantastic time last year, booked again. Agree more Ska Bands, book The Dualers!!
who books the bands? i would love to get my band to play this year?
We get married in camden town hall August 18th 2012..then off to Dublin Castle..
As im a Mature S.W. student,WE CANT AFFORD A fULL HONEYMOON after the wedding in august So we have BOOKED Minehead Butlins for our honeymoon weekend away IN THE NOVEMBER….
We went last year and it was great.. xxx
Ps all invited to the helen & boydy madness wedding in camden town hall august 18th at 11 am DONT BE LATE.
went last year and apart from madness,the comedy and darts it wasn’t that good to be honest, most of the other acts id never heard of and when listening to them i don’t want to hear them again,wanting to go again this year mainly to see madness but other half isn’t so keen due to last years line up,will the funfair be open this year? heard loads of complaints about it being closed last year,i remember one person saying, its called the house of fun and the fun fair is closed, lol
managed to convince other half to go again this year so i hope the acts are better, i think it would be a good idea to have the go karts open and to have races with madness, that would be a right laugh. (better than swimming in the sea like last year).
all booked had a great time last year cant wait till nov this year
All booked..Is it true that Madness are playing the three nights and when is the list of people who are playing their coming out…Its a wonderful venue and adults only its pure Madness
Hope Madness are playing all three nights.Maybe they could play One Step Beyond or Absolutely in their full glory.I have got to agree with Phil about the poor selection of acts last year.How about asking bands such as The Ordinary boys,The Rifles,Kaiser Chiefs,The Selecter,The Automatic or Shed Seven.Im sure if the mighty MADNESS ask them ,they could come to some arrangement.Could you PLEASE try to get TIM VINE on the comedy stage as he is the funniest comedian out there.See you there.Goodnight.
Any news on who else is appearing yet?
Any chance of my band Sounds of Harlowe applying to play? Definitely think we’d go down well! We’re well brassy Regards
Hi agree with a lot of these postings fab weekend however ska bands would be fantastic missing Andy is fab as well as many others
When will you be advertising what’s on ?
We were there last year and it was ace fantastic atmosphere (great fancy dress every night), coming back this year with hashing freinds.
Hopefully more SKA & Reggae this year please, lots of rave stuff last year, the Nutty boys were fantastic. Hopefully they will do two sets at least this year.
We missed the Silent Disco so I hope they have another one this year.
The 10 hours of stand up comedy was first class last year, hopefully the pictures will be open more hours than last year as well.
Looking forward to it already, Mike & Gail
We were the jugglers hanging about juggling in the discos etc, come over this year and have a go.
Hopefully more jugglers there this year, bring your juggling clubs/balls etc
“HOUSE OF FUN WEEKENDER 2012!”

Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show (saw last year, not my cup of tea)
Man Like Me

Im very dissapointed with the line up for this year.I cant beleive its even worse than last year.I thought there may have been a lot more effort made to get a few more established acts on the bill.Hoping there is going to be a few surprises.Fingers crossed.
great few days ,, message to madness ,, please get mr happy back next year . the guy was amazing he filled the inn on the green , and he had every single person up dancing , best dj ive ever seen , the guy knew what the crowd wanted and he gave them it .
Fantastic weekend, a must for any Madness fan. DJ Mr Happy as said by Doddy has to be there next year as well as Benny Boot (Boo!).
Dj’s Craig Charles,David Rodigan and Trojan Music were also the Dogs B****cks.
Already booking for next year.
