Madness announce plans for The House Of Fun Weekender – ticket details

The event at Butlins Minehead will take place from November 23-26

Madness have announced plans for their second annual House Of Fun Weekender.

The event will take place at Butlins Minehead from November 23-26 and will see the iconic ska-pop band playing two live sets over the weekend, on both the Friday and Sunday nights. The Friday night set will be themed.

Madness will also release their brand new album, the follow up to ‘The Liberty Of Norton Folgate’, later this year. The band will be playing songs from the as-yet-untitled LP at the weekender.

Last year’s event saw appearances from Norman Jay, Paul Heaton, Maverick Sabre, Man Like Me, Andrew Weatherall, Jerry Dammers and Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip. The line-up for the 2012 event will be announced in due course.

There will also be onsite entertainment in the shape of ‘rockeoke’ and musical bingo and well as a silent disco and darts. Tickets are on sale now. For more information, visit
