Statement From T&A Events: Mill Rythe

It is with our deepest regret that we have to report that Tony Stace & Andrew Nix will not be hosting the Musical Magic events at Mill Rythe, Hayling Island, next year. Recently the Holiday Village went into administration, but now has new owners and will continue trading.

The administrators, Begbies Traynor, have stated they are delighted to have found a new buyer (Away Resorts Ltd) for Mill Rythe and state “It is a fantastic result to have safeguarded the positions of the one thousand plus holiday makers that had outstanding bookings at Mill Rythe Holiday Village”. 

The events at this venue have been in conjunction with Swift Music of Bristol. Nick and Margaret Swift along with Tony and Andrew have not only suffered financially with this situation but more importantly are all deeply concerned about all the wonderful guests that this may affect. Whilst this situation is beyond the control of this partnership, they will be happy to talk to anyone if they so wish.

Swift Music recently had a meeting with the new owners, who are undertaking a complete refurbishment of the camp over a period of time. The camp would not be ready for an event in February, hence the cancellation of our February weekend. The July event could have taken place but with a 30% increase in price and a promise of only a small percentage of the camp benefiting from refurbishment by the summer. We did not think that this was sufficient to justify such a price increase, so have reluctantly decided not to proceed with this event as well.

Anyone who has paid a deposit to Mill Rythe should write to Kate Lansley, Mill Rythe Holiday Resort, Havant Road, Hayling Island, Hampshire, PO11 0PB to claim a refund. 

T&A Events will carry on providing weekend breaks with the highest standard of entertainment - Their events at York are unaffected. Tony’s number is 01609 748295 and Andrew’s is 01757 708509.

Nick and Margaret Swift can be contacted on Bristol 01179 688427.

We are looking for another venue in the South of England where we can continue to offer value for money breaks with the ultimate in entertainment. If you would like to be kept informed of any such developments (bearing in mind that under the Data protection legislation it is the camp not us who hold your details) please email us at or write to us at:
