Seaside theme

Playaways inspiration is that of a good old fashioned nostalgic seaside jaunts. Think old school British Holiday capers with a twist of contemporary chic. Expect nautical activities, 'Let's get quizzical' with The Sounds Familiar Music Quiz, The Underground Rebel Bingo Club, Swap-a-rama Razzmatazz, an on-site cinema expect themed days and sing-along-Sound of Music with a John Hughes blockbusting bonanza of a Sunday to round things off nicely! Club nights include Feeling Gloomy, Down with Dating bring their 'speed hating', and London's pop fancy dress party Club De Fromage will all be taking a trip to the seaside.
