    'It was just a gorgeous place to be and there seemed to be laughter coming from everywhere!' From the 1930s until the growth of cheap air travel in the 1970s, Butlin's offered the British holidaymaker a rare taste of escape, magic and fun. Drawing on interviews with Redcoats, waitresses, chalet maids and other staff, this book tells the stories of seven girls who worked at Butlin's, vividly evoking the highs, lows, secrets and scandals of life in the world-famous holiday camps.
