Meet the TeamStars and find out about our Kids Club

Entertainment Manager Glen

I was inspired to start joining the Entertainment World back in 2002 once I passed out with a degree in Performing Arts at the University of Essex, Southend. Continuing with my journey I started my first job role with a touring theatre production company as the Company Manager, touring with a great company producing shows, performing in shows as lead roles, and of course playing the part of a dame and the comic from the comedy side of me. After the theatre productions role, I decided to set sail on the high seas and join Disney Cruise Line as Cruise Staff and Children’s Programming Centre, which boosted my career in the Entertainment Business. From then I was the ship’s host, presenting Kids Programmes, performing on the Disney Sky Channel alongside productions, shore excursing host around the different countries to gameshows, deck parties, adults lounge and much more. At the end of my Disney contract, I wanted to work back in the UK for a Holiday Park where I always wanted to be an Entertainer on a family park so it was then when I joined Waldegraves Holiday Park as Entertainment Manager back in 2008 to present, I love working along my Teamstars and the day to day schedule of Bingo, Kids Clubs Live Showtime, Party Dances and so on. I’m now going into my 15th season here at Waldegraves Holiday Park entertaining great people with a great team from the Owners, Seasonal’s and holidaymakers, I’m looking forward to meeting new guests for the season. When you’re here on holiday or visiting pop in and say hello and join in the Entertainment. There are lots of new and exciting things coming this season.

Teamstar Keely

I have always had a passion for performing since I was a little girl, from winning school talents shows to even getting involved at holiday parks with their Entertainers as a child. I started out working with the Mercury Youth Theatre Company for 5 years, performing on their stage in many different productions. In secondary school, I took drama as GCSE and got an A* and stared in the musicals we would perform with the school. As the years went on I chose to do Musical Theatre Extended Diploma Level 3 course at Colchester Institute to learn more about performing.  I then decided to apply to be an Entertainer at Waldegraves Holiday park in 2017 and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. It’s not a job but something I love to do. Working with the kids and making sure that everyone that has a holiday with us has the best time. It’s full of friendly faces and always love to meet new ones. We have such an amazing team and we can’t wait to show everyone the new ideas we have. So when you’re on holiday pop in and say hi as we would be happy to meet you.

Sand Art

 

Have you tried Sand Art before? It’s really fun and so simple to do! Come to The Wheatsheaf and make wonderful coloured pictures with sand to take home and keep. Sand Art is easy enough for the younger ones and also challenging enough for adults. Once you start mixing colours and experiment with different techniques, the possibilities are endless.
