Boathouse Bulletin – July

27 June 2014

The start of July marks the half way point of the season and the start of the main summer months of activities and live entertainment here at Lakeside.

The six week summer holiday starts in the final week of the month when we will increase the live entertainment days, from this week until the end of August we will have visiting artists on Saturdays, Sundays, Tuesdays and Fridays.

We also start our extra summer activities around the pool for the children from the last week of July.

The rest of July has some new names to bring you including MORPHEUS on the 8th who are a male and female vocal duo. DEBBIE FARREL will make a welcome return on the 12th after a break of about five years since she last performed for us. New female vocalist SUZY will be live on the 15th.

The final two chances to play our popular Music Bingo game come at the start and end of the month before it takes a break over the summer.

If you enjoy the Sunday Big Quiz then remember that this will also take a break for August.

Burnham on Sea Folkfest

Enjoy-Somerset_Folk-Festival-imageWith the summer season in full flow, there are some exciting events coming to Burnham on Sea, one of those being the 9th Annual “Mostly Free” FolkFest.

Held across a number of venues around Burnham on Sea over the weekend of 29th – 31st August 2014, this fast growing festival offers a variety of live musical events and something to do for the whole family to include: open air concerts, craft fairs and traders stalls.

The Princess Theatre and Arts Centre, situated in Burnham on Sea Town Centre, is only a 10 minute walk away from Lakeside Holiday Park and is host to some of the evening concerts throughout the weekend.

This year’s Friday night concert will be headlined by festival favorites, The Urban Folk Quartet. This talented 4 piece manage to fuse their extraordinary folk sound with a diverse range of other musical sounds and rhythms to include funk, rock and house! They are certainly not an act to miss and with tickets priced at a mere £10 it promises to be an absolutely brilliant start to the weekend’s activities!

Burnham on Sea Food Festival

Enjoy-Somerset_Food-Festival-imageAnother exciting event held in Burnham on Sea Town Centre is the annual Burnham on Sea Food & Drink Festival. The next festival is scheduled for Saturday, 25th October and features “fun” events like The Great Burnham Burn Off, where entrants are invited to take part in a chilli eating competition!

Having started up in 2012, the Burnham on Sea Food and Drink Festival does exactly what it says on the tin! It is a free, family day out and is all about celebrating the great food and drink produced in and around the local area.

With over 80 stalls selling locally produced food and drink, and a large number of the local retailers offering discounts and special offers to support the festival, a great family day out is guaranteed, regardless of the weather!


Boathouse Bulletin – JUNE

03 June 2014

The early summer month of June is with us already and we have another line up of entertainment all on stage at 9.30pm.

We have a new vocalist making her very first visit to us this year on Saturday 7th when LINDSEY COLLARD sings live. She’s a great female vocalist with a rock voice and will be with us a few times this year.

The popular LEE DAVIDGE is back on Saturday 21st with his mix of Rock’n’Roll and favourite tracks.

MAT ROBERTS is proving to be a popular act for us this year and he will bring his guitar and play another night of just what you want on Tuesday 24th.

We also have two chances to sing along and play our new MUSIC BINGO game this month with another bunch of MP3 players to give away.

Finally, if you’re into football then you will know the WORLD CUP gets underway in June and we will be showing the early evening games at 5 and 8pm in the Sail Loft but due to the late kick off time we will not be showing any of the 11pm games.
