Skegness Butlins has today announced they will be re-opening on May 17th.
Guests who have booked a holiday at Skegness Butlins from April to May will be contacted over the next few days.
Butlins which also has resorts in Bognor Regis and Minehead has been closed since the locked down rules were introduced.
Now that Boris Johnson has set out his roadmap to open the entertainment industry, Butlins in Skegness and other resorts are preparing to welcome their guests.
Butlins has already started to contact holidaymakers to inform them of the new opening date, where those who have booked to stay at the resort while it has been closed will be provided with options.
In a statement, a spokesperson for Butlin’s said: “We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your patience during this time.
“We know it’s been frustrating waiting to hear, and our team have been working hard to move dates/process refunds as quickly as possible.
“We look forward to reopening our doors on May 17.
“We can’t wait to welcome you.”
The resort has invested millions of pounds in a new, Covid-secure venue set to open this year.
The new venue has 860 seats, within enough space for social distancing, which will provide a weather-proof venue for the stages and shows.
The opening of Butlins will be a huge boost to the local economy, and a major sign that Skegness is open for business.
