Go Gay at Butlin's
A quintessentially 1960s advert for the British summer holiday institution.
Advert 1962 2 mins
The music, fashion and entertainment on show in this Butlin’s cinema advert just scream sixties summer holiday. Sadly the Redcoats are a little faded, but there is no mistaking the British summer holiday institution. A glamorous young couple are shown enjoying the pool, playing tennis and taking in an evening variety performance. The only thing wrong is the incongruous sunshine.
