Entertainment venue and swimming bookings

-Haven have emailed this week to announce that tables in the Mash and Barrel and the Showbar can be booked up to Sunday 20th June.

To allow more guests to enjoy the entertainment venues, Haven have added more session times.  They are, however, continuing to see very high levels of demand for tables and still operating under social distancing guidelines with reduced capacities.  During this time, they ask that all guests book tables carefully and considerately so everyone can enjoy the entertainment venues.

As private guests you can visit the entertainment venues when on park to see if there are tables available to book on the day or go to www.haven.com/food.  Your registration code is the code you received from Haven when we registered your arrival.

Remember, if you have a table booked that you no longer require, please cancel it so it frees up the table for someone else's enjoyment.

-Haven are also opening the swimming pools earlier and closing them later to allow for more guests to have fun in the pools! 

Swimming sessions will continue to be available to book on a Tuesday for the upcoming Friday-Thursday.

As private guests, if you have purchased play passes, you can book swimming by visiting the activity hub when on park.

As a reminder, please arrive at the pool swim-ready, and the showers will remain closed.
