Friday 22 – Sunday 24 November 2013. After the disappointment of losing the event in 2012, we can already confirm the dates and details for our weekend at Alton Towers in November 2013.
STOP PRESS: The dates for this event have been changed since the last edition of BN Magazine. Alton Towers want to extend the opening of the park for another week to hold an additional event and have asked us to move. Reluctantly, because we were aware that many of you had already booked for our original date, we have agreed to do so. Many thanks to all of you for your early bookings!
We did not want to make the move, but the Alton Towers management were most insistent and as we did not want to jeopardise our ongoing relationship with them and endanger the possibility of further naturist events at Alton Towers, we have agreed.
As a concession, they have extended the deadline for assessing the viability of the event to SEPTEMBER 21, which gives you an extra month to make your bookings.
We apologise to those of you who now will be unable to attend the 7th BN Alton Towers Naturist Weekend, but we hope you will understand that this move is for reasons beyond our control.
The event will run from Friday evening until Sunday lunchtime, with nudity allowed throughout the Splash Landings Hotel and Waterpark all through the weekend.
There is a specific deadline – we must book 150 rooms by September 21st 2013. There are 200 rooms in total. As we expect that the main reason people didn’t book for the 2012 event was financial, we’ve also persuaded Alton Towers to accept a £50 deposit on booking (instead of the usual 50%) with the full amount payable six weeks before the event. Should we not reach that number of bookings by September 21st, the event will be cancelled and full refunds will be given.
PLEASE… don’t make the assumption that it might not happen and wait to see if it does before booking. We have seen before that if too many people wait, it won’t go ahead. There is no risk in booking now.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The price will be the same as in 2011, namely £285 per room for the weekend (two nights) based on two people sharing or single occupancy. Extra adults (12 years of age and over) can stay in a room for an additional £55 each for the weekend, a child (4–11 years) for £45 each for the weekend. Children up to three years old go free. Prices include bed, breakfast, VAT, entry to the Waterpark and all BN activities. All guests must book for the whole weekend: one-night stays or day visits are not possible at this event – sorry!
The majority of rooms are “family” rooms designed for two adults and two children. It is possible for four adults to share a room, but rooms are made up of a double bed and bunk-beds – please bear in mind when booking.
HOW DO I BOOK?
(For single person sharing service please see below)
A dedicated phone line has been set up, so please phone 0871 222 1100 to make your reservation. Make it clear you are booking for the BN weekend. You will be asked for your BN membership number and that of those in your party.
TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE WEEKEND…
The theme park will be closed for annual maintenance and Alton Towers have therefore offered the hotel for this one weekend to members of British Naturism. It’s become one of the biggest and most fun weekends in the naturist calendar!
The hotel incorporates the Cariba Creek Waterpark, a restaurant, bar, coffee outlet, shop and games arcade.
As usual, we’ll be putting on activities and entertainment – see past magazines, the website and BN Members’ Community for reports and more on previous years’ events to get an idea of what goes on. We plan to have a mixture of exercise and dance classes, workshops and presentations, including guest speakers, music and dancing, exhibitions, tours of Alton Towers gardens, quizzes, kids activities and games for everyone. There’s also plenty of opportunity to chill out in the company of like-minded people.
CAN I BRING MY FRIENDS?
Yes. However, this is a weekend exclusively for BN members and so they must join us first. There are always people joining to be able to go and making Alton Towers their first BN event; in fact, sometimes their first naturist event. It’s a great way to start – please spread the word.
CAN I SHARE A ROOM TO CUT THE COST?
Easy. You need to register for the single-person sharing service. It’s been a very popular initiative, making the weekend inexpensive and a great way to meet new people! Please call BN head office on 01604 620361 and ask to be added to the list. You will be asked for your credit card details and BN membership number. We will put people on the list together and deal direct with Alton Towers to make the bookings.
