Top stars to perform at Mill Rythe Holiday Village

Mill Rythe Holiday Village on Hayling Island has unveiled a star line-up for its themed and entertainment breaks in 2018.

Aled Jones and Gareth Gates will sing at the new three-day Star Cabaret weekend at the resort in May.

Jones began his singing career aged 15 with Walking in the Air, and is now known as a presenter on several TV and radio shows.

Gates was the runner-up in the first series of the ITV talent show Pop Idol, and has performed in many West End shows.

Prices for the three-night half-board break (May 18-21) start at £154 per person.

Also new for 2018 is the Tribute to the Greats, which welcomes the hit West End show, Eric and Little Ern.

The performance pays homage to the classic comedy duo Morecombe and Wise.

Another West End show visiting the resort as part of a UK tour is Whitney Queen of the Night, a tribute to Whitney Houston.

This performance will be the highlight of the 80s Reloaded break in October.

Another new show is the Ultimate Variety Weekender, with visiting acts and cabaret performers, featuring comedy, live music, stage productions, magicians and DJs.

New added extras on selected breaks include a mixologist at the bar, mixing pre-dinner cocktails; daytime classes; and daytime bingo.

The 2018 season starts on January 12 with the All Stars 60s Music Weekend. Other themed events include the Moonlight and Roses Valentine’s break; The Big Hooley for St Patrick’s Day; Golden Age of Variety break; the St George’s Day Special; The Festival of the 50s; and The Military Heroes Celebration
