No doubt many of you will already have heard the news that Pontins have appointed administrators KPMG to continue running the business until a new buyer is found. In the famous words of Lance Corporal Jones from Dad’s army “DON’T PANIC.” Pontins is an iconic brand and a profitable business that will no doubt attract many interested suitors. The Pakefield centre that we use is one of the best and most profitable centres in the group and has only just received full planning permission for a large new area of expansion and refurbishment. This clearly makes our chosen centre even more attractive to other holiday operators as planning permissions are very hard to achieve!
In the meantime while KPMG find a new owner its business as usual and as far as we are concerned nothing has changed on centre we have the same facilities, the same friendly helpful staff and all is still going ahead for next years fabulous festivals.
IMPORTANT: For the last 25 years of trading Sceptre Promotions have always taken all of our festival bookings and payments direct via our own offices. This is in order to offer a personal service to Cavalcadian’s and also to ensure we keep your holiday payments safely on deposit until the event is actually up and running. So please be assured that any deposits and payments made to us are completely safe as they are made out to Sceptre Promotions Ltd and not to any end holiday company. In the unlikely event that Pontins did not find a buyer, (we feel they will!) we do already have another venue lined-up and all Cavalcadians who have booked could transfer across or receive a full refund of their holiday monies. But that is the worst case scenario and we are positive that it is business as usual so please join us at what will be a superb spring spectacular, featuring all that is best in the world of organs and keyboards.
We have a simply fabulous star cast ready to entertain you, so if you haven’t booked to join us yet please do, lets show the new owners that the organ world (the secret Cavalcadian musical army!) is a force to reckoned with.
