Here's what happened in 2023

★ Vintage Entertainment and live bands EVERY evening ★

Each Vintage Weekender focuses on three core themes.
2023 was 60s', 80s' and 50's, with many themes intertwined within each day. Dressing up was welcomed but optional - your enjoyment is what matters most to me, so you do you! 

3 Days & Nights. 3 Eras.

We looked around to find like-minded souls who were there just to have fun and explore the realms of Dawn's fabulousness mashed together to create the magic of weekender! We re-booked whilst we were there!

MODS & MOTOWN

From the moment you arrive, I want you to feel like you've been transported back to another time. For this welcome to Weekender, we will embody the early 60s when colours were bold and blocky and hair was structured and often gravity defying.

The Weekender hair & beauty parlour will be open in the afternoon until supper and if the ladies fancy booking ahead and treating themselves to an updo or beehive, the booking diary will open soon


The afternoon activities involve a groovy dance workshop, quizzes and of course all the on-site facilities.

SATURDAY

4 THEMES IN ONE DAY

The feature era day will be a crazy celebration of key moments of the 80s. Kicking things off with a classic morning workout for all abilites - and the Vintage Market all in the same room!

T
here will be plenty of fun and games before we saddle up and head off to the country for some cowboy action a la Footloose - so bring your Stetson, checked shirts and boots, for a line-dance lesson followed by a hilarious afternoon Hoe Down before getting ready for an evening of cheesy 80s prom fun!


Just like in the film... the kids change the 'NO DANCING' law and an 80s prom is planned where the cowboy boots are ditched in favour of big dresses, fluffy hair and ruffle shirts complete with Dads dicky bow tie...

EVENING

After you've danced the day away - or simply enjoyed the many site facilities including Golf, Table Tennis, Petanque, Rifle Shooting, Archery, Swimming - and shopped until you've dropped, you'll recharge over dinner with friends old and new, as we step into the cheesiest 80s American prom you could imagine! No hair is too big and outfit too corny! 
 
PLUS, the legendary late night party is back for those who aren't quite ready to head to bed! We'll dance into the early hours in the cabaret restaurant whilst bathed in the finest 80s' neon! No need to change, just bring UV accessories!
