Spring Harvest is Butlins, but like you have never seen it before. There are still the fairground rides, the swimming pool, the chalet style accommodation and beach front venue, but alas no knobbly knee or glamorous granny competitions. Instead of Redcoats there are Spring Harvest Stewards who hold doors open for you and keep an eye out for your well being.
The main difference is that your host for the week isn’t Billy Butlin, but Jesus, and the family you are holidaying with is an extended one. The day is jam packed with worship and teaching and seminars; kids clubs and messy church; performances by dancers, singers, comedians, beatboxers and puppets. There is even a Christian Shopping Mall!
But there is no obligation to join in. Everything seems to have been thought of from sign language and loop systems, to meeting places for those who have come on their own and even live streaming into the accommodation for teenagers who are unable to get out of bed before midday.
