Madness

House of Fun Weekender curated by Madness will be held from Friday 23rd until Sunday 25th November 2012 at Butlins Resort, Minehead, in Somerset.

Line-up

The line-up will include two live sets from hosts Madness – the full bill is yet to be announced but will include genres from ska to reggae to electronica. As well as a brilliant musical line up, The House Of Fun Weekender will host an eclectic mix of 'Nutty' entertainment - Rockeoke, comedy, darts, musical bingo, silent disco and games and frivolity from the Squeaky Hill crew (providing "subversive silliness, idiotic interaction and frivolous fun").

Tickets

Early bird tickets are priced from £299.52 for 2 people sharing a twin apartment. To buy tickets, click here.
