(Amsterdam): Schilt Publishing, 2015. First edition. Quarto. 102 pages. Text by David Chandler. A colourful photo exploration of the themed holiday at the iconic Butlin’s resort in the seaside town of Bognor Regis, West Sussex. Created in 1936 Butlin’s has become a British institution and an established cultural phenomenon, with a very particular character, history and identity. Popularity of the resort started to dwindle in the early 80’s with the advent of the cheap package holiday. Butlins responded by introducing the “Adult only Themed Weekends” With various titles such as “Back to the 60’s” or “90’s Re – loaded” and the marvellous “Hot Summer Party”, these weekends attract thousands of work – worn adults ready to try out exotic fancy dress and party hard for two days and three nights. A near fine copy in dust jacket.
