The Holiday Camp Phenomenon

6 March @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

£5.00
Butlins, Barry Island, in the 1950s.

Historian Kathryn Ferry charts the story of Butlin’s, from its origins in 1936 to its heyday in the mid-twentieth century and the challenges posed by the arrival of overseas package holidays. She also tracks the much less well-known story of the charitable community holiday ventures that brought the working classes to the seaside from the 1890s onwards, inspiring the traditions that evolved into a British cultural phenomenon. Discounted admission for Bexhill Museum members.
