I’ve said it before and I will say it again — you lot love the Funstars! So as part of our Funstar Friday we have asked one of our Funstars to give us all the back stage gossip about the Day in the Life of a Funstar. We caught up with Nathan who has been a loyal Funstar of ours for over two years now and we’ve roped him in to doing a monthly post for us, giving us all an insight to the weird and wonderful lives of the entertainment team — so without further adue let me introduce you all to Nathan! — Helen x
This month we are going to take you behind the scenes to discover how our wonderful videos are made! My name is Madi and as Haven’s social media manger, one of my favourite parts of my job is getting to visit our holiday parks, capturing the little known and wonderful things about them and our teams to later be transformed into a video for our YouTube channel.
We all know how much the Funstars mean to our guests so we have taken the feedback on board and decided you all deserve a treat! Therefore every other Friday shall now be declared ‘Funstar Friday’ . Meaning the blog will be packed full of exciting news and updates, straight from the horses mouth.
FunStars are a huge part of every Haven holiday – providing the iconic evening entertainment that generations of holidaymakers know and love. Lots of our younger guests leave Haven wanting to become a FunStar when they’re older! But who are the FunStars and what do they get up to on the park? We’re here to spill the beans on everything – even how to become one yourself…
If you’ve ever visited Haven, you’ll know that our fantastic Funstar entertainment teams are always right in the middle of all of the fun! When they aren’t singing and dancing on stage or entertaining you guys with their terrible jokes (!), they’re leading the kids’ activities and helping the rest of the park team out with anything from check-in to charity events.
But at Haven, it isn’t all about being entertained. We love to give you a chance to wow everyone too!
In our ‘Haven’s Talented Seaside’ evening shows, our guests are given the opportunity to sing, dance or joke their way into our hearts in this competition! Throughout the summer, on different Haven parks, there will be individual shows, and then the winners from each holiday park are given the opportunity to compete against one another for the overall title!
We’ve been flicking through our archives and found a couple of faces you might just recognise…
Nicky got to the Haven’s Talented Seaside final in 2010 – when he was just 13! The youngster is now performing on The X Factor (and doing quite well, I might add!) and it’s great to see that he has come on so much since we saw him on our stage at Primrose Valley so long ago! We’re #TEAMNICKY all the way!!
Joe Evans, now 13, won Devon Cliff’s Haven’s Talented Seaside in 2012 and has since been the leading man in Scouting for Girls and […]
