Pakefield - Now Under New Ownership

Posted: Friday 11th February

News just in from Grant Neal of Sceptre Promotions:

After months of speculation and uncertainty we have great news, it’s now official: Pontins have been saved by the Britannia group. As many of you know Britannia own the Norbreck Castle hotel that we now use in Blackpool. They have a reputation for buying properties and investing heavily in order to completely refurbishing them, so this bodes well for the future of Pontins and Pakefield.

Over the past months many of you have decided not to book for this years spring event because of the uncertainty caused by Pontins going into receivership. We can understand that you wanted to wait and see what happened. Now the iconic brand and our own cliff top musical village have been saved we do hope you will now book to join us for a warm spring break amongst musical friends?

We need you: the new owners will be looking closely at all the events that are held at Pakefield and we want to show them that the keyboard musical army is a force to be reckoned with. With your help we can show Britannia that the wonderful world of organs and keyboards is very much alive and kicking.

Meanwhile we will be turning every corner of the centre into a magical musical feast complete with a fabulous friendly atmosphere. This year features a simply stunning star cast of the very best organ and keyboard stars from around the world, with a mix of favourites, new names and rare international stars providing our famous all day entertainment programme.

There will be a host of exhibitions and dealers diary events, including the return of both Wersi and Bohm in addition to all the other major manufacturers with special owner support for a large range of products. Helping you get the best out of your Yamaha. We hear news of some exciting new product launches, not be missed! We will also have dancing, late nights jams, teach-ins and seminars as well as arts & crafts, plus the centre great facilities (pitch & putt, heated indoor pool, games room etc).

We do hope you will join us, together we can show the new owners the power of the keyboard army, you won’t find a better value break.
Kind regards

Grant Neal and the Team
