Whether you want to take in a show, or enjoy the glitz and glamour of Vegas, there’s a Revitalise holiday to suit all tastes available at Jubilee Lodge and Sandpipers.

On a Revitalise holiday, we don’t just provide 24hour care for our guests, we also offer activities, day trips and live evening entertainment to ensure everyone has a memorable stay.

We have specially adapted minibuses, holiday care workers and volunteers to help our guests get out and about. Most excursions are free but there is sometimes an additional charge for ticketed events and restaurant meals. We provide a packed lunch.

So, whether you’re into sightseeing, shopping, music and theatre, or wildlife, you’ll find a range of activities to keep you entertained throughout your stay.

We are almost always full during Christmas and New Year, so book early. To make sure that no one misses out, we also put on special events in the build-up to the holiday season. Sign up for Christmas Traditions with mince pies, mulled wine, carol singing and a festive feast. Or a tour of Christmas Markets around London and the south (Jubilee Lodge) or England’s North West (Sandpipers) and complete your Christmas shopping amid the tinsel and warmth of our centres, enjoying a glass of prosecco on arrival and a Christmas dinner.

Soak up the Sport

This is a big year for sport, with the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris and the UEFA European Football Championship being hosted by Germany. Celebrate the tournament with Euros Football Frenzy, a summer holiday with a football-inspired twist, or join us to soak up the sun and get into the spirit of the 2024 Paralympics.

Step Back in Time

Nostalgic for the sounds and culture of another era? Our Destination Decades trips take you back in time to celebrate the best music, films and TV of your favourite age. At Jubilee Lodge you can head back to the Roaring 20s with a Gatsbyinspired, speakeasy-themed week, complete with a murder mystery night. If Britpop and Grunge is more your thing, Sandpipers is offering 90s Smash Hits, while both centres are offering a totally rad week of fun with Ultimate 80s.  Image of a guest enjoying Youth Week at Jubilee Lodge along with our care staff and volunteers

For younger guests, we run several Youth Weeks throughout the year. The centres transform into lively hubs of activity, with a buzzing atmosphere and unmissable entertainment. The Spring Youth Party is inspired by Easter and the Hindu festival, Holi, while the Autumn Youth Party takes Halloween and Diwali as its theme. The Winter Youth Party celebrates the magic of Christmas, complete with a late-night gli er ball. Or you can join the countdown to midnight at our New Year Party, along with winter day trips, games and a latenight rendition of Auld Lang Syne.
