On the basis of his performance on The Voice last Saturday, I'd go just to see Peter Donegan - he was fabulous!

For some reason the website is quoting very expensive prices at the minute?

Not unusual, the prices seem to bounce up a down earlier in the year, I don't tend to book until September when they have settled down.

Do you have a Butlins account? I got a quote without logging in then one after logging in & it was £20 cheaper...still too expensive for me, I wait till it gets to around £150!!

I believe that you get a 5% discount if you're a Premier Club member (you become a member automatically after your third visit).

Current poster, though seems some doubt on some of the acts.

If you're thinking of going a double room is currently £151 on their website which is extraordinarily cheap and you can get a further 10% if you've attended more than three weekends - tuck in.

I got their price guarantee because I booked on resort last December. So far I have had the price lowered 3 times and are currently paying 68 pounds less than I was quoted in December!
The annoying thing is you have to keep checking yourself and email them, they won't automatically adjust the price.

I am still hopeful of further price decreases.

I like what you did. I think I’ll do that next year. Play the waiting game for low price and Tesco them.
