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 12th 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 2020 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 in the season 2020

An egg-citing mixture of science demonstrations and hands on experiments with your Mad Scientist and his assistant … Dr Eggbert! What’s the difference between a chemical and physical reaction? And can we make a silent explosion…?
A spook-tacular mix of science experiments that are sure to make the hairs on your neck (and your head) stand up! Join the Mad Science team for a mixture of hair-raising experiments using electricity as we create a human circuit to power the light!

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.
