I'm loving performing at Butlins - It's great!
Aside from that they look after me with all the customer service you might expect of the organisation that invented the Red Coats, part of my arrangement with them is that i get a family ticket, so the kids get to come along and enjoy all the water slides, fun fair rides, shows, bowling, adventure playgrounds et al, and the Science Festivals are full of extra fun, like walking on custard (Non-Newtonian fluid!), dissecting eyeballs and the awesome Brainiacs show. Particularly popular is experiencing a computer for every year since the 1970's to the latest Virtual Reality headsets!
And the crowd there love my bubbles! I perform my family show there and add on a couple of 'Meet & Greets" so that i can have some extra fun with people. The reaction is always lovely and it's such a community of folks, that it doesn't take long before i have somehow achieved minor celebrity status there. It's cute! Kids giggle and point (in a good way!) and want their photo taken with me. Breakfast and dinner at their surprisingly good buffet restaurant is particularly entertaining.
Anyway, this video doesn't capture that, but it hopefully gives you a flavour of the bubble fun that we create there - wanna come along sometime? Keep your eyes out on my FB page for details of future shows there!
