The Sportsfield
The Sportsfield
The Sportsfield was often the focal point for many of the special outdoor competitions held at Butlins. Events on the Sportsfield could be watched at a distance from the first floor Coffee Bar in the Viennese Building.

The Sportsfield was bounded by chalets on the left, the Viennese Building in the centre, and the Dining Halls (stores complex) on the right.


Marching Band
It was quite private on the upstairs balconies, except for the daily chalet maid who made up the beds and cleaned.
