Twixmas is the period between Christmas and New Year – Of coarse it is! We all love cruising, but sometimes it is not always possible. The cruises over Christmas can be too long away from family for some, but if you just want to get away for a few days, especially if you are alone or like some cruisers, cannot easily find the insurance, then a Pontins Festive Break might be the answer. We know that some of our followers like the Big Band and Dancing Breaks, so we just thought we would run this option by you. Beware, it is on land!

Turkey and Tinsel starts in November!

The Bluecoats will be providing sacks full of entertainment over each break, and this may involved some of the acts you are used to seeing on board ship. Some acts won’t go away on a ship over Christmas but will take a one night gig at Pontins, especially if it is not far from home. I can see some acts booked we don’t know like Little Chix and Kayley, I wonder who they are? The Bluecoats also perform in their own Festive Show plus providing all the fun and games, karaoke and late night parties. Captain Croc and his Crew will be up to their usual mischief, keeping the children laughing and dancing at their very own Christmas Party Time! Sometimes, getting the kids away is a great way to have a break yourself.

Pontins is creating a Winter Wonderland full of magic, excitement & surprise to get you and the family into the festive spirit, there will be lots of festive activities and magical shows for the whole family, plus all children will even get a chance to meet Santa!

The Pontins Festive Breaks are not to be missed! There will be amazing entertainment featuring live comedy and tribute acts, party bands, magic & illusion, plus fantastic vocalists and some well known household names! Pakefield and Sandbay are adult only, whereas Southport and Brean Sands are family parks.
