Gina's Butlins Blogs: Until Next Time...


I can not believe how fast this summer has gone by...so fast that I couldn't even keep up with a weekly post! I'm sure everyone can understand that though :) and, although the weather may not have been the best, I'm sure I speak on behalf of all the team when I say its been a summer to remember!


A week ago Butlins said 'Goodbye to the Circus' at all three resorts and we said goodbye to some amazing artists who we are all now proud to call friends as they jet of to the airports to have some well deserved time at home or are on to their next adventure.


Performing to so many happy families on a daily basis has been bliss and having been able to meet such lovely people along the way has made our job so enjoyable... its been easy to forget that it is a job!

In Skegness we were treated to a farewell cake from our front of house team and they even joined us in the ring for a final bow on our last performance. I am sure the other two units had some tearful goodbyes to face too. Signs of a successful summer if you ask me! 



But not all of the artists have left us! Some of the acts from Bognor, Minehead and Skegness are now teaming together to continue the Gandey Circus 2017 Tour which commences in Smethwick - Lightwoods Park on the 14th of September! That's the beauty of this business...you are forever bumping into or working with previous colleagues so it never really is a true goodbye.
