People of a certain age will have fond memories of the BBC hit sitcom Hi-de-Hi, which brought to life the antics of the entertainment team at the fictional holiday camp, Maplins, striving to keep their guests entertained with glamorous granny, knobbly knees and talent show competitions.
While guests still love a talent show, holiday park entertainment has gone through a complete makeover since the Hi-de-Hi hey days, and Away Resorts is leading the pack. You can view our brand new shows at Mill Rythe for 2017.
In a first for a British holiday park, next year Mill Rythe will be featuring a production straight from London’s West End. During the park’s new three-night Primo Weekender, from 31 March to 3 April, we’re proud to present a performance of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, a new touring production of the West End theatre sensation that originally starred Jason Donovan in the lead role of drag queen Anthony ‘Tick’ Belrose.
Other big name shows include Martin Kemp, from the chart-topping ’80s band Spandau Ballet, Steve Harley and the Cockney Rebel Band, much-loved comedian and singer Des O’Connor CBE, singer and impersonator Joe Longthorne MBE, Drifters frontman Ray Lewis… the list just goes on and on.
