We love pulling all the stops when it comes to entertaining you on-park and here's why!

At Away Resorts our mission is to wave goodbye to your standard caravan break and say hello to a wild, remarkable and memorable holiday! All year round our holiday heroes put in a tremendous amount of effort planning high quality events and activities that, well and truly, exceed your traditional family 5-a-side football or rounders events. 

As we all know and hate, legislations made by the Government make it difficult for children to take time out of school for a well-deserved holiday – BOO! With this in mind, our holiday heroes work hard to pull out all the stops during the holiday months, to make sure your holiday is amazing value for money and definitely one to remember, by putting on unforgettable events.

There’s nothing more precious than making memories with your loved ones which is why we believe it is important to provide an array of family-friendly, extraordinary events, which doesn’t involve sending the kids away to ‘Kids Club.’ You won’t get Holiday Park entertainment like this anywhere else

Tell me more!

Our unique events started off with an outdoor cinema, screening family-loved favourites, underneath the starry sky. All screens are set up in picturesque locations, helping you to discover the beauty of each holiday park whilst spending quality time with your family.  Since then, our events schedule has escalated drastically with our epic Cream Pie Fight and Colour Festival and our well-loved music weekends including; The Big Weekend, Rock the Bay and Rock the Lakes – which has attracted celebrity performers and tribute acts that make you look twice!

Making Colourful Memories at Away Resorts

To celebrate the start of the summer holidays in style, all 6 parks throw an uplifting Colour Festival inspired by Holi, a Hindu spring festival also known as the “Festival of Colours.” The feel-good street party involves a cool Caribbean steel band and body-popping Bollywood dancers – which will get the shyest of characters up singing and dancing.

I recently visited the Colour Festival at Mersea Island and the atmosphere was electric! During the festival, I caught up with the brains behind the event, Max Barraclough, who had this to say, “The event this year, which is in its 2nd year, we just couldn’t have dreamed for it to go any better. The weather has been on our side…and that simple joy and pleasure when guests throw the powder in the air…it’s just amazing!”

Max is just one person behind a hardworking team of holiday heroes, who are involved in making this event extra spectacular. From buying thousands of pounds worth of coloured powder to putting on an energetic dance routine before unleashing the powdered paint – I literally can’t thank the team enough.

Messy Madness at our Cream Pie Fights!

6000 tins of shaving foam, 6 beautiful holiday park locations, a team of holiday heroes and our very own holidaymakers is what it takes to get one of these events up and running. We are proud to host the biggest holiday Cream Pie Fight and due to the sheer popularity, it has now become an annual event taking place on the Sunday of the August Bank Holiday Weekend.

Here are a few snaps from last year’s memorable events…

I’d like to introduce Lloyd Nandra, our Group Events & Activities Manager, who works behind the scenes making sure this event is as messy as ever!

“I love the pie fights, there is such an anticipation and excitement in the air for the whole day leading up to 2pm. And then for that two or three minutes it is just unrivalled chaos and joy. Kids pieing their grown-ups, grown-ups definitely not being shy to pie their kids back! It’s one of those things that is so simple, yet you wouldn’t want to do it at home. Definitely an Away Resorts signature moment!”

The fun continues all year round!

Summer is an awesome time to visit us due to our prestigious outdoor events, however if you can’t visit us during the summer months, never fear! We continue to impress with stunning events all year round.

Take a step back in time to the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s and join us for the Vintage & Retro Festival. You’ll be treated to fabulous live performances which we guarantee will get you to the dance floor for a good old boogie. Or why not spend Christmas with us on-park? There’s always lots of festive fiestas going on including our 2018 stage production Cinderella and Boxing Day sing-a-longs at Mill Rythe!
