Butlin’s Big Weekenders – a template for unforgettable Festival Theme Events

Butlin’s Big Weekenders provide event planners with a stress-free template for delivering unforgettable festival themed events for their clients. At Butlin’s, event profs will find everything they need to create their own festival—from world-class equipment on three professional stages, to accommodation and dining—all supported by the experience of the Butlin’s Big Weekenders experts.

Butlin’s knows how to put on a break exclusively for adults. This isn’t your traditional Butlin’s family break, they run separately. Butlin’s festival style events are all about friends getting together to let their hair down and enjoy live music, entertainment, comedy and lots more. Next year, Butlin’s will host 75 Big Weekenders across the three resorts at Bognor Regis, Minehead and Skegness. Big Weekenders truly live up to their name, featuring big entertainment and big experiences, headlined by world-class artists and DJs performing concurrently on four different stages—Reds, Centre Stage, the Skyline Pavilion and Studio 36.

No party weekend is complete without food. At Butlin’s, attendees stay fuelled with bottomless brunches or dining at the on-site restaurants, so they have the energy to enjoy the daytime experiences—pool parties, silent discos, adventure golf, laser tag, go-karts and more – as well as the live music throughout the evening.

Butlin’s can replicate the Big Weekenders format for bespoke business events, creating authentic festival experiences with no need to hire additional equipment or build stages. Butlin’s already has it all, so your budget can be invested into attendee engagement instead of trying to transform a venue that is not fit for purpose.

As with all events at Butlin’s, everything is all in one place, simplifying your planning while empowering attendees to customise their own experience to share with others.
