A nostalgic exhibition exploring the history of the British Holiday Camp.

The first Holiday Camp appeared in 1894 on the Isle of Man; however it was in the 1920s that Billy Butlin launched the concept of the holiday camp in a gigantic way.

The concept grew rapidly after the Second World War and dominated the British holiday scene through the 1950s and 1960s. This exhibition celebrates this uniquely British institution.

A touring exhibition by Emma Warren Exhibitions.
