Please note, this review is only for the 80's weekend 2014. Loved the all the acts although we all felt (10 of us) that the breaks in between each act was far too long. Main venue far too hot and smelt really bad, nearly every act mentioned the heat and we were sweating too with our 80's gear on. We wondered weather Butlins did this on purpose so we bought more drinks! We had a fantastic weekend spoilt by people partying in the chalets till 6-7 o'clock in the morning. Even playing football at 4 o'clock, it was wild, not aimed at the original 80's people, just stag and hen parties. No security at all. Screaming, singing, shouting, it was awful. Felt disappointed with Butlins for not doing security checks. We are not all boring people and love to have fun, but this was ridiculous and out of control. We especially loved Keith Harris (Amazing) Toyah and Dr and the Medics, but in future we would rather see them in a venue where we could get some sleep too. Would not return, purely because Butlins had no control over certain guests! We will stick to Party in the Park (Hyde Park) in future and other festivals.
