Haven’s Talented… Nicky Mcdonald & Joe Evans!


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.

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!

When Christopher Maloney came to visit…


I’ll set the scene: it’s a beautiful sunny day in Hastings; the lifeguard’s cleaning the outdoor pool, the owners’ team are having a BBQ, there are kids eating ice cream outside the Mash & Barrel and Christopher Maloney is in the live lounge performing an incredible sound check.

As a huge X Factor fan, I was excited to meet scouse Chris, so between autographs and photos with the 2012 finalist, we managed to get a quick interview.
