Thank you for having a look at my personal photos of Butlin's Minehead, the location I have the most wonderful memories. You can also click on some of the photos to see additional information about my memory and some knowledge that might be helpful
The name of the main bar, which was being used for the arcade prize exchange in 2019. I am unsure to its use in todays Butlins (as of 2021)
The Crazy Horse Saloon Trading Post shop at the rear of the stage.
The entrance of the club, there use to be swinging doors here at one stage giving this club the western feeling.
Better in the light as we see the seating area at the rear of the club
I use to dance the night away on that dance floor. This is the actual dance floor that I danced when I was a teenager and wow, what a feeling it was to see it still there in 2010. Even now, as I type this, I can still remember this great time.
The toilets of the Crazy Horse Saloon.
The main stage area of the Crazy Horse Saloon Club. This remain in place in 2019 however, I am unsure it remains in 2021
The swinging doors of the Crazy Horse Saloon, as shown int his photo. They would be at the entrance to give that Western theme to the club.

The colour area here shows you the former entrance from the funfair into the club. This path way also led to another shop on the left, also called the Trading Post. There was a burger shop on the left that had to areas open, one for those using the funfair and those from the camp side. There was also another exit straight ahead that led you to the reception building.

The former location of the small shop of the Crazy Horse Saloon, where you can purchase additional items for your fun at the club. This included glow in the dark items and many other items. I believe, at one stage, you could even buy chocolates or something similar at one time. I am unsure (as of 2021) if this remains in place.
The Crazy Horse Saloon...the best club for me personally. I do not believe there will ever be another however, they do say "never say never". On this photo, you will see one area that is in colour. This is the light that would be showing the sign saying "Trading Post" . The shop use to go along the back to the other exit on the other end. It was closed down in 1998 and disused. Most of it was used for storage.
The colour area on this photo has a great deal of meaning to me as this was the place me and my mates that I met at Somerwest World, had hanged out. There use to be a seating area here and several pool tables that you could play on. Today, this area is being used as storage but the memories are there for ever in time for me. What a moment to be in Butlin's.
One of the areas that remained untouched or had very little done to it was the Crazy Horse Saloon. Of course, 2021 had seen the year it was changed into the arts and crafts however before this, it was the club that I missed a great deal. There is no better club than the Crazy Horse Saloon for me. It remained in place for a very long time and was used, as I was told, for use of private hire and special events. However, it meaning and what it was designed to do was not there. It was a club frozen in time as it sat there waiting to entertain its guest. Even, at one stage, host the prize shop and bingo. The shop at the rear of the club was still there in 2019 but closed off and used as storage.The club logo remained for some time, as shown here in 2010 (ten years after it closed). I have shown the original sign, the one in 2010 and an invert version to show the shadow of the logo.
