History of Butlins Skegness

Postby Claire H » Mon Aug 31, 2009 9:52 pm

Hi everyone. Does anyone have any information about Butlins Skegness, why did it stop being Butlins in 1986 and become Funcoast World? And then why and when did it become Butlins again? I'd love to know! Just been looking at the fire of the Princess Ballroom in 1974, really good. Great website, very interesting!

Hi Clair welcome to the forum.

at the time Butlins was owned by Rank who wanted to re-brand the Butlins side of the company, not the best of ideas but they gave it a go, but soon reverted back to Butlins.

Here is more on the fire at Skegess in 1974 from a Redcoat who was on duty at the time.
