In 1936, Butlin’s holiday camps were bastions of community spirit. Here, mothers were freed from housework, children ran free through the grounds, fathers hung up their work clothes. And, as the sun went down on another happy day, a chorus line was ready to sing holidaymakers back to their beds. Rich in period detail and highly evocative, Wish You Were Here! follows the highs and lows of the holiday season.

Professional reviews

"Touching true stories from the heyday of the Butlin’s holiday camps Funny, moving and heartwarming, they are tales of swimming pools and sing-a-longs, and of a community spirit that burned brightly in a much-loved British institution."
