ADULTS ONLY! : 80's Weekend 4th OCTOBER 2013
« on: March 15, 2013, 09:58:22 AM »
A number of us are heading to Butlins for their 80's weekend in October. Rick Astley, Sonia and others are appearing and neon is obligatory!  We've booked a number of rooms between us and have opted for the premium dining so we don't have to worry about food, the cost comes out at around £165 per person for the weekend.

Dates:  4th October
Butlins Skegness

If anyone wants to join us, as long as you find at least one other person to book with, the rooms are available with food for around the price above. It should be a fab weekend, lots of silly outfits, wine and laughs guaranteed  :)

This isn't a SWK club trip, but up to now everyone who's going is off SWK (though everyone welcome)

Sounds fun, but a 5 hour journey on a Friday night isn't  :'(

It's only 3 hours from Manchester.  I thought it would be more from there and less from the North East but it's 3 hours for me too.

Altered Images?!!!???

We absolutely will be alterating our images  ;D  ;D  ;D

Would anyone from the Midlands fancy the Butlins trip.  I will ask my friend Sonya, who I met through Single With Kids, but if anyone does, let me know.

We've one space available on this weekend and there's a fab line up !  Rick Astley, Altered Images, ABC, and more, as well as Blondie / The Jam / Madness tribute acts.

If anyone else fancies joining us the cost includes full board and use of all the facilities. Oh and fabulous company too of course ;-)

Neon tights anyone?

I can't actually remember wearing much neon in the 80's funnily enough, although I did have rolled up trousers, big shoulders and a curly perm. Ouch.  We'll have to dig out our old photos at some stage, if nothing else it'll prove to the kids that if they think we're embarrassing now, they've seen nothing.... :-)
