Meet Babs

The meaning of Butlin's is very strong with Babs, who is an honoured member of this website (click here to see Babs story). Coming to Butlins with her parents, Babs would become a Redcoat and represent Sir Billy's dream to a high level. Today, Babs continues to be an inspiration to us all and is an expert on Clacton.

Always having the time to speak with anyone at any time, Babs has always been a person who is easy to approach. She loves a story of Butlin's, however, Clacton is where her heart is, so if you have anything on Clacton, please share away. Babs is also great at finding answers and has a great deal of knowledge to help where she can. I am extremely honoured to have Babs on my website and in our group.  There is so much that Bab gives to us all and never asks for anything back, showing the spirit of Sir Billy Butlin.  


Meet Chris

When it comes to Butlin's history, you find that search engines come second to this gentleman. Chris's knowledge comes with much passion and wisdom, which makes you feel that you are there in that moment. His details of each postcard, photo, video, or anything is outstanding. I was so very excited when he accepted the position of an expert in the group and so very honoured when he started sharing his memories and knowledge. My respect for Chris is so very high and I am so very thankful for all his time as he offers his knowledge for all to read. Chris certainly has the Butlin's spirit within him as you read his words on the group and this website. 


Meet Les

An amazing person whose knowledge of Butlin's hotels is extremely impressive. I was so very pleased and honoured when Les commented on the group and then gave me permission to share his knowledge on this website. Les continues to share his memories as he shows that Butlins continued to create memories for both staff and customers. Les is always willing to help with any knowledge he may have and loves to see that of Butlins that sparks that memory. Some of the chats between Chris and Les are ones that show you a connection that helped towards creating that great break/holiday for us all. Today, Les continues to show his impressive knowledge with us all and I am so very honoured to have him here, on this page for the world to see. 


Meet Dave

Dave, an amazing member of our group, is one of the greatest organists that I have ever come across. His music is truly beautiful and full of magic for everyone to enjoy. Dave had a major role in Butlins as he played to help the campers enjoy the entertainment and dance the night away. Today, Dave still continues to play the organ and is featured on many websites showing his very impressive skills. Dave also loves to see the Butlin's memories that we all have and has shared his story (click here)  with this website. 


Meet Mandy

 Since the first day we chatted, we have got closer and close until we became the Butlin's family. Mandy has some of the most wonderful stories of Butlins and today, has a great deal of love for the name. Busy with some demanding horses, Mandy is a kind-hearted person who is always happy to see any era of Butlins. Mandy is also the god-daughter of Sir Billy Butlin and always speaks highly of her time at Butlin's Pwllheli camp. 

Mandy's grandfather, Major Frank Bond (see the story here), is an amazing story to read as you see a connection to the rock gardens at Pwllheli.

Who and What is Butlin's Memorabilia Website

Mark Banks owns and created this website to show his collection of Butlin's memorabilia items. It was created during my spare time at work and is a hobby of mine and has since grown into a site that offers a chance for others to smile. This website is NOT the official website for Butlin's and is NOT the official archive of Butlin's at any stage. The website has expanded to show stories, with permission from that person, of a moment in Butlin's from people who are either a customer or former staff. This website is in loving memory of all that had come to this amazing company and to Sir William Butlin, the founder.  This website also has information about research regarding Butlin's history with information obtained from the research I made, which is not official. 

Butlins Memorabilia extra areas

This website is made and maintained by me, Mark Banks, as a fan site to celebrate the amazing Butlins name as it has such a large meaning to me.  Below is additional information about the website and answers to questions that you might be thinking of (hopefully I have covered them all, if not, get in touch)

The Untold Stories of Butlin's

The website has expanded to now include an area called "Untold Stories of Butlin's". These stories have been added to the site by a member of my group who has shared their moment at Butlin's. These stories are not from the official company and are from the person it represent, as shown on the page. The stories shared are from that person's memory and show the magic of Butlin's on how it creates that special moment. 

If you are not official, who is Mark?

Butlin's Memorabilia is NOT the official website for Butlins. This site is also NOT the official website for the archive of Butlin's. The owners of Butlin's, Butlin's company, and have NOT approached me to design this site. They have no involvement with the development of the website or with the information that is shown. I am extremely thankful that they allow me to continue showing you their company's rich history. 

The number one website for Butlins is always, where you see all the information about booking a break.
