Now the end of the season is here, we can look back fondly on one of the best Summers ever at Monkey Tree Holiday Park.
Highlights here at the Park include:
- Party in the Park Tribute Festival
- Summer Fun Day
- Funky Monkey’s Birthday Party
- St Patrick’s Day season launch
- The Halloween Scarefest
What have we missed?
Grunge and Brit Pop were live and well at Monkey Tree Holiday Park as we teamed up with Forever 90s to present an evening of classic hits.
Big Summer Fun Day
If there’s one thing Funky Monkey knows how to do, it’s throw a party. The annual Summer Fun Day was bigger and better than ever, with hundreds enjoying the bouncy castles, live music, face-painting and games at Monkey Tree Holiday Park.
Funky Monkey, Olaf and the Minions also made an appearance, dancing with guests and posing for selfies. Families staying at the Park enjoyed free entry to the event, while others living or staying locally paid for a day pass.

It’s not only been a great year on the Park – there have been plenty of other reasons to celebrate in 2018….
It’s official. 2018 was the country’s hottest on record, beating 1976 with seemingly endless scorching temperatures, sunny days and no rain.
The heatwave meant we all flocked to the coast in search of sun, sea and sand, and we weren’t disappointed.
The sun shone, the ice-creams were eaten, and the #beachselfies flooded social media.
The Poldark effect
Cornwall’s population increases from 500,000 out of season to over 5 million in the Summer, and 2018 was no exception.
The fantastic weather brought around 20% more visitors than normal, and some tourism leaders asked that we stop promoting some of the county’s most popular beaches, to try and deal with the crowds.
Aidan Turner’s naked torso walking through the waves has put Cornwall’s beaches on the map, particularly those in the far West of the county where many Poldark scenes were filmed. Luckily there are hundreds of beaches to choose from, so a paddle in the sea, a surf lesson or jumping the waves was still available.
In the News
There was the World Cup in Russia, where England, motivated by Gareth Southgate’s waistcoats, made it through to the semi-finals for the first time since 1990.
The matches were screened live at Monkey Tree, where fans gathered to cheer on the team.
The country also got pretty excited about the Royal wedding, when Harry and Meghan tied the knot at Windsor Castle.
And next year it will be the royal baby!
