just phoned pontins & they say bed linen is provided.maybe its because i booked last year.i think all 2013 bookings will have to bring their own.best to check

It's more likely that it's still on the beds from last year!!!! Only joking...........but as you say best to check.

if you ever use travelodge's for overnight stays, they dont provide bed linen, cant remember if that also applies to premier inns as well, but it appears to be a normal practice where cost cutting is concerned...if they have to keep washing, ironing and replacing worn out goods, eventually the costs get passed onto the punter, so taking your own is a good idea as well as been more personal.

just spoken to one of the organisers and i can confirm that for the march 8th-10th event, bed linen WILL be provided.

however, that arrangement will change from 2014 coming into effect from march as part of a company-wide policy.

you can, of course, bring your own this time if you wish, but just to reiterate, linen WILL be provided and is FREE of charge.

Glad it's all cleared up. Post was not made with any malice it was just something I'd seen on their web site. Not long to go now.

Glad there's going to be bedsheets.I can now knot them together, and make my escape to the Queen Vic without anyone noticing.

yeah daz, that prompted me to have a look anyway, but its no inconvenience to bring own stuff anyway. ive also been assured that the quality of fresh hot food onsite is well up to scratch, they have a proper chef...oh, and anyone planning to "escape to the queen vic", make sure you're in there 12 noon sharp on friday or i will report you to warden poole!

use them all the time as well, when i refer to linen i mean sheets, pillowcases & duvet covers...they provide pillows, duvets, bed base valance and towels of course at all travelodges, they dont provide anything extra to do with bedding, that includes hotels as well as motels.

Never been in one travel-lodge where everything isn't provided. The whole idea is so you can pull up, sleep and carry on with your journey. They provide the basics for a nights sleep.

Just ask for more duvet covers etc if you need them as they provide extra bedding no problem and we have never had any problems with heating etc

Like i said before we use them all the time and they are very good for the low cost, far better than the conditions of the onsite accomodation at a lot cheaper prices

Anyway c ya there

Anyone heading to Prestatyn from Central/Southern Scotland, looking for a lift/ car-share maybe? Could take up to 3 others,(or 4 short-arses!), in relative comfort if I take my own car. Planning on traveling on the Friday daytime, and returning Monday morning, but fairly flexible around times.

PM me or call/text Ray on 07501 586727. (Impeccable personal hygiene; references available!)

[Hi I live in Grimsby and I was planning to travel via train on my own, I'm afraid I've had to leave things to last minute as I wasn't sure if I could get the time off work. I would be happy to hook up with you and share travel costs but I need accommodation for one and wristband so if anyone has this available please get in touch.

Had confirmation that Bed Linen is supplied. The 'New Rules' come into effect after the Soul Weekend so we are OK.

What do you need Bed Linen for anyway, you probably wont see your bed for 3 days !!!

come on now, brothers & sisters......why have we gone from rejoicing about the forthcoming soul extravaganza to having nightmares about filthy, greasy hovels?, this is pontin's up-to-date,...people who's perspective is to ensure we all have a stay to remember...just like going on your jolly's, but with the extra added comfort of quality music to make you wish you didnt have to go home after....and like whats been said above......you're going to be too busy diggin' the sounds, the dancing, the sales, the artists and the conversation to even think about 40 winks or even the gourmet food on offer ( all though me being a bit of a michelin * fan ) its gonna have to live up to something...so if you want me to be the secret restaurant inspector and get the lowdown whilst you treading the boards, im yer man...LINO?....GET SOME TALC ON IT!!

One for the promoters please...............

Can ordinary punters sell their 45's out of a 100 stock box at this event ?

This is part and parcel of the "scene" BUT has been complicated in the past by the

"soul sales police" coming around and pushing their weight around.

I know Traders have to pay for tables at this event; but I just want to be able to sell

a few 45's without hassle.

"PRESTATYN SOUL WEEKENDER 2013 UPDATE: As a result of strong interest, and with 30 weeks still to go to the return of Prestatyn next March, Pontins have asked me to thank everyone for their interest and to now advise that all the budget "Popular" apartment deals for both 4 and 6 persons have now sold out.

However, there is still availability on the "Classic" and "Club" style accommodation deals starting at at only £49 per person (based on 6 sharing a "classic").

For full details of the remaining deals on offer, please go to www.prestatynsoulweekender.com .

For bookings, please phone either 0844 576 5949 or 01745 881800 or online to www.pontins.com quoting reference number : NSP1.

On the line-up front, Pontins will shortly be announcing the identity of a third American live act who will be appearing exclusively at Prestatyn in the Northern Room on the Friday night.

I will then update everyone about this as soon as possible"

Are the budget chalets definitely sold out? They're still showing as available on the Pontins website...

could a promoter put accomodation prices on this site,as prestatyn have said that you set the price,

i have booked a classic one bed chalet but have been given 3 different prices when i have phoned them to check,due to a friend who says he has written confirmation that is 90 quid less for similar chalet.

was also told 2 different ammounts of deposit to pay.so not confident that corrct prices are being charged.so it would help if you could put them on this site to check against what prestatyn are saying.

We tried to book 5wks ago and it was £299 for a Classic accommodation, I left it 2wks and the popular was back on sale for £199 so I reckon they had not sold much so they opened more cheaper rooms
