Showbiz Weekends & Family Short Breaks

This summer book a trip with a difference at Potters Resort: the first five star holiday village in the UK, offering fantastic escapes away in a wonderful location near the beautiful Norfolk coast!

Not only that, they have a mightily impressive offer for all tastes and budgets – mid week and weekends; One-nighters with worldwide superstars such as Billy Ocean and Peter Andre (perfect for a girlie, let-your-hair-down weekend - prices from £119 per person), Show Weekends with performances fit for the West End, Dance and Exercise breaks (adults), as well as themed musical weekends such as Big Band, plus three generational breaks for all the family during school holidays.

Their breaks include pretty much anything you could think of: a range of excellent accommodation options, four meals a day (every day!), free sports and leisure facilities and a varying daytime programme full of activities and entertainment. Everything is taken care of – it couldn’t be easier.

Don’t miss the brilliant evening entertainment in the hi-tech Atlas Theatre; not only is there some fantastic shows from the Potters Theatre Company, but also performances from Potters favourites including Peter Andre, Billy Ocean, The Overtones and stars from Strictly Come Dancing, who have returned time and time again to the resort – the result of millions of pounds of investment every year and a reputation that keeps on attracting stars! Keep an eye out for 2 brand new shows this year: A Night At The Movies (bringing the sounds of the cinematic greats to the stage) and Cool Britannia (50 years of timeless British songs rolled into one fantastic show).


This Autumn Potters have a jam-packed schedule of one-night breaks, so plan ahead and get booking. Highlights include superstar Dame Joan Collins bringing her one-woman show, Joan Collins Unscripted, to Potters for a one-night break on 2 October, and impersonator Darren Day performs alongside Britain’s Got Talent stars in the A Night of 100 Voices break on 30 October.

One Night breaks start from just £119 per person.

If fun with friends is more your thing, Potters’ Weekends With Friends breaks are ideal – designed with adults in mind, these generally take place in term time and offer the complete package that Potters is so renowned for. Stay in one of their kitted-out bungalows for free or check out their upgrade options, and look forward to meals and entertainment included in the price.

There’s every activity imaginable on offer to enjoy, from football on their full size pitch and Rally carting to golf, archery and clay pigeon shooting – and adrenaline junkies might want to give the 16 metre high ‘Giant’s Swing’ a go, too! The 65 acre resort even has its own private beach for visitors to enjoy, and plenty of bars and restaurants to refuel and enjoy an after-dark tipple at.

This is the ideal place to book a family break to suit every age: tots, teenagers and grandparents – everyone’s covered! The breaks are conveniently planned around school holidays and key seasonal events, with both midweek and weekend options, so there’s bound to be a break to suit you all.

Kids can pick from some amazing activities including archery, bungee trampolining, rally karting, bouncy castle fun, Segway challenges, football coaching and countless others; there are specific activities for adults to relax and unwind, some just for kids to go wild with, and some for all the family to spend some quality time together. ‘I’m bored’ is not a phrase you’ll be hearing during these breaks!

At the end of each fun-filled day enjoy delicious food from the resort’s many eateries including The Garden Restaurant and The Gallery Restaurant, where your meals will be included in the cost of the holiday, or the wonderful Black Rock Grill, which serves up a selection of fresh meat and fish alongside a ‘Hot Rock’, on which you can cook your own ingredients exactly how you’d like them! (You can add a Black Rock Grill experience to your break for just £25 per person; this is saving £10 on the menu price).
