If your Saturday nights are spent curled up on the sofa tuning in to X Factor, The Voice, Britain’s Got Talent and the many TV talent shows that take over the schedules, you will love the music breaks available at holiday parks across the UK.

Talent-show pop stars of past (and almost present) are playing up and down the UK, and their performances are included with the cost of your holiday – brilliant entertainment, great value.

To save you the hassle of searching the web for show dates we’ve brought them together, and sorted performances by region to help you find your favourite singers. Scroll down to see the listings.

But first, here’s a quick round up of the best acts singing at holiday parks this year.

Gareth Gates

Gareth found fame on Popstars, the pre-cursor to X Factor, when he reached the final and battled it out with Will Young. Gareth has continued to feature on TV since making his breakthrough and has kept up his music career with several albums and singles released. You can catch him at Haven, Park Resorts and Sand le Mere this season.

 

Shayne Ward

It’s next stop Corrie for the former X Factor winner, but before he becomes a regular in soap land Shayne is performing at Sand le Mere on the Yorkshire coast. Expect smouldering looks and lung busting ballads from this pop favourite.

 

John Clegg

Impressionist Jon Clegg made his name doing his version of judge Simon Cowell on Britain’s Got Talent. His cheeky tactic earned him a wildcard to the series final, where his brilliant act gave him a 7th place finish. Jon is appearing at Haven parks this summer.

 

Jonathan Wilkes

West End star Jonathan Wilkes brings his voice to big band in his incredible show. He’s joined by a seven-piece orchestra that brings the night to life. Jonathan is performing at Haven parks.

 

Joseph Whelan

Joseph found fame on the X Factor, but before that he had fronted rock bands and had his own solo career. Catch Joseph at Haven parks in June and July.

 

Paul Burling

Paul’s career has come full circle; after starting out as an entertainer on holiday parks in the 1980s the impressionist who wowed the crowds on Britain’s Got Talent is appearing at Haven parks again this summer.

 

Steve Brookstein

Steve is the original X Factor winner and his new show – Forgotten Man – is a nod to his post-TV career. He’ll be performing new songs and classics at Park Resorts in June and July.

 

Joe McElderry

Park Resorts is welcoming yet another X Factor winner – Joe McElderry – with a one-off show featuring songs from his hit albums. Joe is backed by a superb live band.

 

Kevin Simm

Kevin made his name as a singer with top group Liberty X, who reached the heights with 10 hit singles in the UK top 20. Catch Kevin at Park Resorts during the summer.

 

The Honeyz

After reforming for TV’s Big Reunion The Honeyz are back and their blend of soulful R&B and pop sounds better than ever. See the group with Park Resorts.

 

Nicholas McDonald

Teenager Nicholas sung his way to (almost) success on the X Factor, finishing as runner-up in the 2013 show. This season he’s singing at Park Resorts.

 

Jonjo and the Kerr’takers

Former soldier Jonjo has teamed up with live band the Kerr’takers to take his show to Park Resorts – you’ll recognise him from his performances in the X Factor.

 

Bob Blakeley

Crooner Bob was a hit with the crowds (if not the judges) on The Voice, and went on to record an album that hit the UK’s Top 40. He’ll be performing his record at Park Resorts this summer.

 

Katrina and the Waves

Britain’s last Eurovision winner was Katrina and the Waves in 1997. After recent poor performances in the annual contest you can see how it should be done as the group perform their biggest hits, including Walking on Sunshine, at Park Resorts this season.
