Rehearsals are in full swing for our ultra-talented showteam and band who are busy putting together a jam-packed programme of live music, theatre-style shows, family games, party dance and much more to wow the crowds with this upcoming season.
We’ll be announcing further details of all the exciting entertainment and daytime activities we have planned for this year shortly, but in the meantime we thought we’d introduce you to our brilliant Beverley Holidays showteam and band for 2014.

Simon is also represented by one of the largest agencies in the country.
Name: Mat Morgan
Position: Assistant Entertainment Manager
Mat is entering into his 9th year with Beverley Holidays and is a favourite among guests for his slap-stick comedy character, backed up by a powerful vocal performance spanning rock and power ballads. Whether it’s building sets and props for the shows, smashing out a Bon Jovi classic or having people belly laughing at his daftness, Mat is at the heart of the action at every opportunity!

Position: Band Manager
Chris needs no introduction. His popularity as a performer and personality at the holiday park is unsurpassed. Concentrating this year on the live music element and band performances, Chris is considered a legend ’round these ‘ere parts’ and has Beverley Holidays embedded in his DNA. He loves nothing more than entertaining the crowds on a daily basis, and can’t wait to kick-start this upcoming season!

Roger has been with Beverley Holidays on a part time basis for the last 2 seasons and we are delighted that he’ll be joining us for an extra night in 2014!
