A MUSICAL based around the delights of a Butlin's holiday is set to sail into Winsford next month.

Performed by Micron, ‘Redcoats’ aims to delight audiences with seaside tales and holiday camp magic as they guide you through 80 years of the Billy Butlin's holiday dream.

The musical has been created by BBC Radio Leeds broadcaster and playwright Nick Ahad, who said he loved being able to wet his feet down at the seaside in the process.

"Lots of people will have many happy memories of Butlins, but I bet none have memories of going to the same Butlin's in Skegness for 14 years in a row,” he said.

“I do, and some of my happiest memories were created in that seaside haven in the eighties and early nineties.

“It has been a delight to revisit those memories while writing Redcoats."

Mikron's Artistic Director, Marianne McNamara, added: "This play is great fun, and that's what Redcoats were there to do.

“It has been a joy to research this play, as Billy Butlin was such an ambitious fellow who made holidays possible for so many.

Redcoats will be coming to Winsford Academy Theatre on Friday, September 13 at 7.30pm.
