A warm family welcome to

Potters Leisure Resort

A

s the longest established family business in our industry, having celebrated our 90th year in 2010, we are delighted to introduce Potters and this 2011 brochure to you and your family and friends. Why has Potters been awarded 5 Star Holiday Village status for 9 consecutive years? The five star grading is judged by the highest authority in our industry, ‘Visit England’. This was previously known as the English Tourist Board (not to be confused with the AA’s Hotel scheme), and we believe the reason we have received such an accolade reflects not only on our continual investment in our guests’ facilities, but also the investment in our friendly team here at Potters. enjoyEngland.com

HOLIDAY VILLAGE

Potters employs 1 member of staff to every 1.5 guests! This is the highest staff to guest ratio in our industry, which we hope goes someway to illustrate our commitment in offering you exceptional levels of customer service and attention to detail. However, this is only a statistic in a brochure and a brochure cannot really illustrate a far more important quality that permeates throughout our team and that is their friendliness! This is not a corporate style of ‘friendly’, which we can all see through these days – but a genuine warmth. This makes us as a family very proud to employ such a dedicated and passionate team, which is truly focused on an uncompromising commitment to quality and service. That is what our regular guests continually remind us is the most distinguishing factor that sets us above others, and will leave you with a lasting impression that will make you want to return again and again. Over 80% of first time visitors return to Potters for another short break or holiday. With probably the highest level of repeat business in the industry we put this down to not only superb facilities, the best in

entertainment, good food, comfortable accommodation and of course the above mentioned friendliness of the Resort and its team, but also for our guests to return we understand that they must feel they have received value for money. Indeed, this is demonstrated by the recent introduction of an inclusive fourth meal, in the form of a free midnight dish for those looking to satisfy those late night nibbles. A break at Potters includes so much more in the break price… Unlike so many others these days, who seem to want to squeeze every last penny out of each customer by expecting you to pay for everything on top of your holiday price, we continually aim to offer a more inclusive package that doesn’t leave you feeling like a walking cash machine whilst you are supposed to be relaxing on your break! If you take a look at the table on page 3 you can see how these extra really do add up when compared to the more inclusive value that awaits you here at Potters. Potters relies almost solely on word of mouth and recommendations from its existing guests! We focus on this friendliness and inclusive value not just because it is ingrained in the ethos of Potters, but also because we are not a faceless multi-national company spending millions on advertising to get new customers to replace those that defect after their first experience. We instead rely on our returning guests coming back to see us again and again, and when they are not with us to be recommending us to their friends and family back home. We prefer it this way as we can then spend resources on our facilities and team for your comfort rather than waste it on huge national advertising campaigns. Our 2011 brochure can only really illustrate the visible appeal of Potters and we invite you to carefully select the break type most suited to you and your party and come and see for yourself why so many of our guests return time and time again.

So much more is included in your Potters Weekend or Short Break

TIME TO PUT YOURSELF

FIRST

A

t Potters, the expression ‘time to put yourself first’ takes on true meaning since a short break at Potters not only allows you to ‘put yourself first’; in your choice of accommodation, style of break or activities to enjoy, but also gives you the ‘time’ to do as little or as much as you want.

Of course the ‘yourself’ covers every member of your party, but most particularly the party leader who has organised the short break for the benefit of their family, colleagues and friends. So a weekend at Potters allows you the ‘time to put yourself first’ – to relax – to re-energise the mind and body – to re-connect with loved ones and friends, away from the pressures and stresses of everyday life. We have recently arrived home after our seventh visit to your Resort and as always had a great time. We are amazed how you continue to maintain such a high standard and must congratulate you and all your staff. You definitely deserve the 5 star status you are awarded. Long may it continue. Mrs A Stock, essex

To help in your relaxation and enjoyment we are continually striving to offer an even more inclusive break package at Potters. After all, if you leave Potters having enjoyed a great short break away and having experienced real value for money, you are more likely to return. And with more than 80% of our first time visitors returning you are also likely to bump into some new found friends on your return visit to Potters.

Your Break at Potters Includes... Comfortable Accommodation Our Bungalows are included in your break price. Each offers a comfortable retreat with central heating, private facilities, guest soap & towels, colour TV with selected satellite channels and Tea/Coffee making facilities. For those wishing to add even more comfort and space, we offer alternative accommodation options, from our very popular Bungalow Plus to our Hotel Premier, Deluxe, Suites and Penthouses, for a per person per night supplementary charge. A variety of accommodation is available, suitable for singles, couples and families. For more information please see pages 4-5.

Full Board At Potters full board means four meals a day, for every full day of your stay; from Dinner on arrival to Breakfast on your day of departure (Sunday lunch is included on 2 night weekends). Start your day with a Full English or Continental Breakfast buffet. Choose from a variety of meals from your daily 3 course lunch menu, or for a lighter alternative choose from our Omelette and Salad bars. A minimum of three courses is served in the evening with a great choice and variety of food, rightly praised for its quality. For those that feel peckish later on, our midnight dish of the day will ensure that you never go to bed feeling hungry. For more information please see pages 6-7.


Inclusive Value at an Inclusive Price The first table below compares a 4-night October Half Term Break for two adults and two children staying at Center Parcs and Potters. The second section compares a two night weekend break in a Country or City Centre Hotel during May 2011 with a similar weekend at Potters. We freely accept that it is difficult to compare different products in terms of value, in that Center Parcs’ forest locations and central swimming dome is very different to our coastal setting and in the comparison with a Hotel the style and variety of what is available is substantially different from what is available at Potters. But the fact remains that with both of these options you can see how all those extras add up and how our policy of including so much more in the initial break price results in Potters offering great ‘value for money’ without sacrificing on quality.

Potters compared to Center Parcs

evening entertainment Experience a magical evening of entertainment every night in our state of the art Atlas Theatre. Our very own accomplished Potters Theatre Company perform on the majority of Breaks, with a variety of new shows designed to delight and dazzle. Plus, the very best visiting comedians, cabarets and Star names perform throughout the year. After the evening show, late night entertainment continues in the Terrace Bar or Gallery Lounge, with live music, comedy or Disco’s every night of the week. Our bars close in the early hours, for those that wish to party the night away. For more information please see pages 8-9.

sports, leisure and daytime activities A host of sporting and leisure activities, facilities, dance and exercise classes, quizzes and games are available for your enjoyment every day of your stay. There is so much to do, we believe you will be hard pressed to fit it all in. From swimming pools, indoor & outdoor bowls, 9 hole pitch ‘n’ putt, archery, climbing walls, tennis, badminton, off-road rally karts, snooker and lots more besides. For more information please see pages 10-13.

*The accommodation compared is a standard Bungalow versus Center Parcs’ two bedroom Comfort Lodge **Potters’ breaks are full board. At Center Parcs their breaks are self catering with all lodges having full kitchen facilities. For the sake of comparison we have assumed an average meal cost of £20 per person, per day. Both prices are based on a family of four with 2 adults and 1 child 2-8 and one 9-15 year old. Center Parc’s prices are taken from their website at time of going to print (April 2011). For full details of what is included in your Potters brochure price please see page 52

Potters compared to a Hotel If you are looking at a weekend away then take into consideration the whole cost of an alternative to Potters and see how the costs soon mount up; first off there’s breakfast, a three-course lunch, three-course dinner and a midnight snack to budget for which is likely to cost somewhere in the region of £150 over a two night weekend, if you’re being careful with your cash. Then an evening out at the theatre and perhaps a cinema the following night is likely to swallow up £40 or so. Depending on the facilities available at your hotel you may wish to spend the day enjoying a swim, or a game of tennis, go karts, climbing wall or bowls, all of which will cost a few pounds here and there. So, before you know it your two night weekend has cost you approximately £190 per person and you haven’t even paid for your hotel room yet! At Potters we like to do things differently. Our two night weekend breaks start from as little as £189 and they include everything mentioned above and much, much more. So once you’ve paid the break price pretty much everything is free; four meals a day (for each full day of your stay), nightly theatre entertainment, late night cabaret or disco and a vast array of daytime activities and sports & leisure facilities. Some breaks even include all your drinks, so there really isn’t any reason to get your wallet or purse out during the whole weekend.

Food and Drink

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Midnight Dish At Potters, inclusive means four meals a day for every full day of your stay. We look to source our food from the local area wherever possible, to ensure absolute quality and freshness. A variety of choice awaits you at every meal service from a menu that changes day to day during your break. And we believe that no guest should ever leave our restaurant unfilled, which is why we operate an unlimited policy – if it is on the menu, you can have as much or as little as you desire.

The garden restaurant This spacious restaurant with its high domed ceiling has been compared to those you would find on a luxurious cruise ship. The Garden Restaurant operates as the main restaurant on every break. Meals are a shared experience, with tables planned to seat four to eight people, conversations flow freely as guests’ enjoy food with friends, new and old.

The gallery restaurant The Gallery Lounge Restaurant is available on a majority of weekends and family breaks and offers the same menu choice as in the Garden Restaurant.

Dinner On the majority of breaks your dinner is three courses and is rightly praised for its quality and variety. However, on many Sunday nights, our Five Course Gala Dinner is the opportunity to really push the boat out. Our friendly restaurant team are there to offer you advice and information on dishes to help you make the right choice for you. Midnight Dish Breakfast Start your day the best way possible with a choice of Full English, Continental Breakfast, Cereals, Yogurts and a selection of Fresh Juices, Teas and Coffee. Help yourself from the Breakfast Buffet, and remember you can have as much or as little as you wish. Lunch Enjoy a Three Course Lunch with a number of dishes to choose from our daily lunch menu. Or, for a lighter alternative try a made to order Omelette, or Salad, Fresh Seafood and Cold Meats from the buffet.

Feeling peckish towards the end of the evening? A late snack before bed, or a tasty pick-me-up before continuing the night’s revelries? Then our Midnight dish of the day is the perfect antidote. A different choice is available every night, ranging from Delicious Curries to Tasty Chillies.

We endeavour to satisfy any guests’ specific dietary requirements, but we would appreciate you advising us prior to your arrival, so that our reservations team can discuss this with our chefs.

We felt we just had to write and say what a wonderful Swish weekend we have had. This is the fourth year we have gone to this event and each year it seems to get better and better. From being warmly greeted at Reception to the moment we left it was one action packed, fun weekend. The shows this year and all the cast in particular Sion, Michelle, Buzby and Richard were brilliant. Mr & Mrs Brooks, West Malling.

Weekends at a glance Date

Ultimate Party Weekends These special Breaks are all about injecting some energy and sheer fun into a weekend.

After dinner the Atlas Theatre doors open for an evening of shows, comedy, music, dancing and Disco, carrying on until late. Easing you into your next day is a special Brunch, served from 10am until midday, and for those early risers Croissants and Fresh Juice are available from the Bowlers Bar. Then the party gets underway again... an excellent weekend for those looking to add that little bit of extra spice to a great break.

Relax and enjoy a leisurely break at Potters

midweek leisure breaks Great inclusive value relaxing

N

othing could be more relaxing than the tranquil setting of the Norfolk coast for an inclusive Midweek Short Break. With great entertainment every evening, a host of inclusive sport and leisure facilities to enjoy, as well as tasty food, comfortable accommodation and four nights of great variety entertainment included in your one break price, your short break is designed exactly to suit you.

The majority of Midweek Breaks throughout the year, outside of the obvious school and bank holiday periods, are specifically designed with adults in mind. There are plenty of activities to choose from during your days, from Pitch ‘n’ Putt, Adventure Golf, relaxing swims in Palms Health Club to dancing tuition, snooker, darts, quizzes and much more. During the Indoor Bowls season most four night Midweek Breaks feature a free to enter Indoor Bowls Tournament with some great prizes to be won (including entry to the Potters Champion of Champions).

These very popular tournaments are the ‘must win’ event in many Bowls Clubs calendars’ and due to their popularity roll ups tend to be very limited.

2 Night Midweek Breaks If you are looking for a shorter Midweek break we have many throughout the year that have a 2 night option, where you can arrive on either a Monday or Wednesday. For more information please see our Break Planner. 5 Nights or Longer Many guests looking for a longer holiday choose to add on the preceding Sunday night or even the weekend to extend their four night break into one of five nights or even longer. Breaksaver options are shown in the break planner.

My expectations were exceeded on all fronts, from the quality of the buildings, the standard of the hotel room to the quality of the food and the restaurant service. I was particularly surprised at the entertainment in the theatre. Of particular note was the performance of songs from Les Miserables - truly professional. The only complaint was the weather – try and do better next time! Mr & Mrs Flook, Waltham Cross.

our tribute to the West End You don’t have to love musicals to love great music. Here we give you the widest choice and the biggest smash hits, whether you love the classics like Miss Saigon or Les Miserable or the fun of Glee and High School Musical it’s a musicals tribute night to remember!

“I am writing to thank you for the lovely time we had at Potters. We were made very welcome when we booked in, the staff being attentive and polite. Then came the entertainment with Mark Brewer and the The Great team; just wonderful American we have never Songbook laughed so much, also The USA has dominated the Potters Theatre the world of Company were very entertainment for professional.“ decades so it makes perfect sense to celebrate the wealth of great material from across the pond. Legends like Frank Sinatra, The Supremes, Elvis and the Drifters and many, many more take centre stage in a non-stop roller coaster ride of the best America has to offer.

mr & mrs hance, leigh-on-sea.

Three of the biggest shows in town are a smash success because of the incredible back catalogue of 3 legends of music. Abba, Queen, and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. So be prepared for the best in entertainment as we bring you our tribute to The Jersey Boys, Mamma Mia and We Will Rock You. None stop classic tracks and lavish costumes and sets create an unforgettable experience.

Il Divo (Il Diva)

Classical music topped the charts once again thanks to the power and beauty of Il Divo. The master stroke was to take well known songs and give them a classical twist, so that you end up with the perfect balance of new and old. However, we’ve gone one step further and made room for the girls who are on hand to become ‘Il Diva’, so that together they create a powerfully stunning show.

Duets They say two heads are better than one and in the world of entertainment it is often proved to be so true. This show features some of the greatest musical collaborations of all time but also takes a look at some of the funniest duos which, to be honest, were probably best forgotten, remember Renée and Renato? From Grease, Dirty Dancing, and the Charts the list is endless and the hits are timeless.

Variety Spectacular If variety is indeed the spice of life you will find it all here. Potters Theatre Company perform their personal favorite music from The Eighties to the Naughties plus tributes to the amazing Blues Brothers and the king of Pop himself Michael Jackson.

The Decades A thirteen piece live band featuring incredible musicians and great vocalists recreate some of the finest music ever made by the likes of the Eagles, Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and dozens of others. It’s an interactive show where you can dance the night away to the sensational sounds of the Decades.

The Stars of Dance Friday 1 July – 3 Nights

Jimmy James & Gwen Dickey Sunday 25 September If you like soul then look no further than the sensational sounds of two classic artists on this fantastic one night special. Jimmy James and the Vagabonds first charted in the 1960’s and had a string of hits, heavily influenced by Jamaica, where James was raised. At the height of his fame, Jimmy toured regularly and appeared on Top of the Pops with his soulfuldisco hits including I’ll Go Where The Music Takes Me and the unforgettable Red Red Wine. Gwen Dickey is perhaps best known as lead singer of 70’s chart topping disco act, Rose Royce, whose hit Car Wash was the soundtrack to the summer of 1976. Her soulful voice has wowed crowds across the world, and now she returns to Potters along with Jimmy James after much demand, to sing for us again. 60’s Festival Friday 20 May – 2 or 3 Nights This fabulous 60’s festival features The Ivy League, The Fortunes, Chip Hawkes (The Tremeloes), Union gap and Gerry and the Pacemakers. On the Sunday night they all come together for the ultimate 60’s lineup which is available as a One Night Special or the culmination of a brilliant three night weekend.

Potters presents, in association with Richard and Lynn Miller, The Stars of Dance. If you’re a fan of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing then this is the perfect weekend for you. On the Friday night we feature the Rising Stars of the Dance World with World and British Youth Champions performing with Potters Theatre Company and the Potters Big Band. On the Saturday morning and afternoon workshops in Latin American and Ballroom are available with Richard and Lynn plus one of the sessions will be with James and Ola Jordan. In the 2010 series of Strictly Come Dancing James was partnered with Pamela Stevenson and his wife Ola with Paul Daniels. In the evening James and Ola take to the Atlas Theatre Stage for a Q&A session and their own stunning show. On the Sunday, the format is similar, except that James and Ola are replaced by Darren Bennett and Lilia Kopylova, one of Britain’s finest Latin American Dance partnerships and regular professional dancers on several series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Their shows simply have to be seen to be believed; it’s just like watching the real thing. Even Benny Anderson said “Björn Again are the closest you can get to seeing Abba.” That’s all the praise they need!

We had a really great weekend at Potters and having never heard about them before, we were understandably apprehensive. But we needn’t have worried and we all had a fabulous time. Needless to say we will be coming again! Mrs M City, Chelmsford

Potters hosts Midweek Bowling & Leisure Breaks from September to mid May every year (excluding School Holidays). Each Midweek Break can be enjoyed by over 500 bowlers and is suitable for players of all abilities. Being the home of the World Indoor Bowls Championships, our facilities are second to none and include: 14 indoor and 7 outdoor rinks, electronic scoring with flat screens and new blue rinks.

Bowling Breaks The No.1 Resort for Great Bowling

During Indoor Bowling Breaks, each player is guaranteed 4 games, which are normally 12 ends. In addition to the guaranteed league games, the top 16 teams (occassionally the top 8) will progress to the knock-out stages of the Tournament. If you do not qualify for the knockout stages there are still opportunities for you to continue bowling. The schedule (shown right) highlights the midweek breaks on which our free-to-enter Bowls Tournaments are available. We do not operate a dress code, but many of our bowlers prefer to play in traditional whites/ greys. During breaks that feature a Bowling Tournament casual bowling and roll-ups will be restricted. Indoor Bowls Tournaments are only available on four night Midweek breaks.

P

otters Champion of Champions

In addition to some great prizes, the successful teams from each of our Midweek Indoor Bowls tournaments will be invited back to play in our Champion of Champions competition (Monday 19th December) to compete against the best for a fabulous trophy and the prestigious title of ‘Potters Champion of Champions’

Please read this Helpful and Important Information Potters Theatre Company, Mark Brewer and named acts

What’s included in your Potters Break

Due to the incredible demands of Potters entertainment programme we reserve the same rights as all professional theatres in that we cannot guarantee that any individual principal in the Potters Theatre Company, or featured named entertainers including Mark Brewer, will be able to appear on every show or on every Break. We can however guarantee a thoroughly professional production every time the curtain goes up in the Atlas Theatre. All reservations are accepted under the above condition and whilst artistes featured have been contracted in good faith, in circumstances beyond our control we reserve the right to substitute another act/artiste without prior notice or refund – for full details see our Booking Terms and Conditions.

At Potters we endeavour to ensure that as much as possible is included in the brochure price. This includes your accommodation, full board (from dinner on night of arrival through to breakfast on day of departure unless specified) and entertainment. Most sports and leisure are included with the exception of a few that either have high consumable items (e.g. Clay Pigeon Shooting) or require specific personnel outside of the normal free activities programme (e.g. the Palms cardio-vascular fitness suite Induction). In addition, machines (including Lockers, Ten Pin, Arcade and coin operated machines), Bingo, retail outlets, drinks and snacks outside of included meals are chargeable. This list is not exhaustive and we reserve the right to amend and add additional optional activities and facilities for your enjoyment, which may be chargeable.

Cancellation Protection Cover ONLY £7.50 per adult We understand that sometimes you have to cancel your Break due to unforeseen circumstances. We strongly recommend that Guests take out our Cancellation Protection Cover (£7.50 per adult, free for accompanied children). Those Guests with cover can claim a refund excluding their Deposit and Cancellation Premium providing the reason for cancellation is covered– See Booking Terms and Conditions for full details. Charges as set out in the Booking Terms and Conditions are applied for cancellations of complete bookings, reduction in duration, reduction in number of Guests or a change from adult to child – name changes are allowed with a £6 amendment fee per name change to cover our administration. Unfortunately those Guests who have not paid for our Cancellation Protection will not be covered for any losses or refunds as a result of unforeseen cancellations for any reasons. We can issue cancellation confirmations for these Guests to make a claim against other Travel Insurance that they may have.

Little extras – free or to hire Cots and High Chairs. We have a number of these available without a supplement if prebooked. Most of our cots are modern net sided travel cots but not all our rooms are suitable for a cot to be added, please ask when making your original reservation. Refrigerators – £2.50 per day (included in Bungalow Plus accommodation). Some Hotel rooms have drink coolers however, these are not as cold as a refrigerator and therefore may be unsuitable for some medicines. Hair dryers are provided in all hotel rooms and Bungalow Plus and for other accommodation can be hired free of charge with a refundable deposit of £10. We do have wheelchairs for hire at only £3 per day with a refundable £20 deposit.

Special Requests All Special Requests are noted but on the understanding that we cannot guarantee these. If there is a request that you need confirming, say for a medical reason, please discuss it with us prior to making your reservation.

Arrival dinner is normally available up to 7.45pm and we regret we are unable to serve any meals after this time.

Arrival and Departure Days Accommodation keys are normally available from 2pm on your day of arrival except on Sundays when accommodation will not normally be available before 5pm and in any event not earlier than 4pm.

On your departure day all accommodation must be vacated by 10am (12 midday on Sundays).

CANCELLATION AFTER START OF HOLIDAY: Where a guest detailed on your Reservation has to cancel their holiday after commencement due to any

reason refunds are not given. If you have taken Cancellation Protection please see ‘CANCELLATION AFTER START OF YOUR HOLIDAY’. IF WE CHANGE YOUR RESERVATION: Very occasionally, it may be necessary for us to make changes to holiday details and to our brochure both before and after your reservation has been confirmed. As this is usually the result of circumstances totally outside of our control, we must reserve the right to do so. Most changes will be of minor nature. If however there is a particular service or facility that you require or anything which you feel is a major reason for selecting the particular Potters Holiday you are requested within our policy of ‘Fair Trading’, to confirm with our office in writing at any time prior to arrival, that that particular service or facility is available for your holiday date. We undertake to acknowledge in writing all such requests. Should you not make any such request in writing, it is contractually agreed that the provision of any such service or facility is a minor part of your overall Potters Holiday. In the rare event of our having to make a major change, we will notify you as soon as possible. We will then offer you the choice of A) accepting the changed arrangements or B) purchasing an alternative holiday, if available, (and paying or receiving a refund in respect of any price difference) or C) cancelling your holiday and receiving a full and prompt refund of all monies paid. If you choose A or B we may pay you compensation as shown below. If you choose C we will refund all the money you have paid to us plus compensation shown below. However, in no case will we pay compensation if the major change is made as a result of unusual and unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, e.g. natural disasters, fire, industrial disputes, technical problems, bad weather, acts of government, the consequences of which we could not have avoided even with all due care. Period before arrival date within which a major change is notified to you: Compensation per Adult More than 42 days: NIL 0 – 42 days: £5 on holidays less than 7 nights/ £10 on all other holidays. No compensation is payable in respect of minor changes. We further regret we cannot be responsible for any costs and expenses you may incur as a result of any change. IF WE CANCEL YOUR HOLIDAY: Very rarely we may find it necessary to cancel holidays and we must reserve the right to do so. However, we will only cancel holidays if: A) You fail to make payment in full and on time, B) if we are forced to do so as a result of unusual and unforeseeable circumstances beyond our control, the consequences of which we could not have avoided even with all due care or C) it is possible we may cancel a particular holiday if we have sold insufficient capacity of available accommodation to enable that holiday to be operated within an acceptable standard of both atmosphere and viability. In the event of cancellation (other than due to your default in payment) we would then return to you all money you have paid us, or will offer you an alternative holiday of comparable standard. Whichever you choose, we will pay compensation as shown above. No liability for any other costs which may arise from such cancellations can be accepted by us. D) we are continually refurbishing and updating the Resort with new facilities and accommodation, sometimes it is unavoidable that these plans will affect holidays booked in advance and accepted in good faith at the time of booking, where this causes a change to your holiday we will endeavour to inform you with as much notice as possible and offer you alternative accommodation or alternative dates or if necessary we maybe forced to cancel your holiday with us, in this unlikely event a full refund of all monies paid will be made to the party leader. Potters Leisure Ltd cannot be held liable for any 3rd party and/or any other expenses associated with any cancellations howsoever caused. POLICY OF FAIR TRADING: We take every care to ensure that the details of our brochure are accurate with regard to the descriptions of the services and facilities available or planned to be available at Potters. The operation of Potters is subject to legislation and guidelines laid down by the ‘Health & Safety Executive’ and Local Authorities and their codes of practice. We accordingly reserve the right to adjust our services in order to meet these standards. All photographs used in our brochures are intended for general guidance only. It is possible that in some circumstances, some accommodation or a particular facility may have to be temporarily withdrawn, due to maintenance, renovation, adverse weather conditions, changes in governmental legislation, or any other factor outside of our control. We therefore reserve the right to make such alterations in the above circumstances without prior notice, and are unable to accept liability for the loss of an advertised facility, or to pay any compensation for any inconvenience caused. However, see ‘IF WE CHANGE YOUR RESERVATION’ section. The incredible demands of Potters entertainments programme means we cannot guarantee that any individual principal in the Potters Theatre Company or Mark Brewer will be able to appear on every show or on every Break.
