In 2023 we are returning to Pontins Prestatyn Sands in North Wales. The park is situated between the rolling hills of North Wales and miles of award winning beaches. There’s plenty to do in the local area including the visiting the majestic Conwy Castle, enjoying the fun of the Rhyl Water Park, or an adventurous climb up Snowdon.

The Holiday Park itself has plenty to offer, particularly for the children (see the list of facilities below). We will also be providing our Clownfish funzone again along with our annual five-a-side football tournament. Access to all these activities is included in the cost of Word Alive.

a place to hang out

Whether you’re looking for a place to catch up with friends over a coffee or just a place to sit down, we have plenty of choice for you.

If you’re staying off site and know others at the event with their own chalet we hope they’ll invite you in for coffee. But there are places to sit all around the site too. The Fun Factory has lots of tables and chairs available. There are sofas on the stage which you can feel free to make use of. There’s also seating outside Pontins reception.

And for 2022 we will be providing more covered outdoor seating to create spaces with plenty of fresh air to reduce the risk of covid transmission.
