Does my accommodation booking include the Status Quo Fan Club Convention ticket as I cannot see this confirmed on my booking?
No – once you have booked your accommodation at Butlin’s please click here to book your 2022 convention tickets.
Can I book accommodation or Convention tickets when I arrive?
No bookings or payments for accommodation or Convention tickets will be taken on arrival. If you have not pre-booked accommodation or tickets you will not be allowed on site.
Can I book my accommodation in any other way?
No – all bookings for Butlin’s accommodation must be booked via the official link – Butlin’s Accommodation
This is because FTMO… has been allocated a certain amount of accommodation and Butlin’s need to be able to manage this correctly. Butlin’s need to know exactly who is onsite as part of the Convention. When booking your convention tickets, wristbands will not be released until FTMO… have confirmation that accommodation has been booked via the correct booking system.
FTMO… are not responsible for any costs incurred which may result if accommodation needs to be altered due to not using the correct booking method.
