Venue & Location

Prestatyn Pontins could almost have been designed with Safe As Milk in mind. It has two excellent live music spaces of 2400 and 1000 capacity each with fantastic sight lines from any spot in the room. Each space will be enhanced with our own high quality sound and lighting and with top-drawer staging and video facilities.

We’ll also have a large and unique marketplace area offering a variety of great food (from ‘proper’ breakfast to sweet treats, fine pastries, spicy dishes, wood fired pizzas, grilled steaks and more), our own branded safe as milk stout and golden ale, bespoke screen-printed artworks and screen printing demos and workshops, live lathe cutting, an Aladdin’s Cave of records and audio rarities for sale from sellers from across the UK, t-shirts and much more.

There’s also a large pub on site that will host talks, special DJ sets and other events. And you’ll be able to make full use of other site facilities including the swimming pool, go-karts, and snooker hall. Look out for news of some great exhibitions and special film screenings during the weekend too.

Pontins also provide a Nisa supermarket for any essentials you might forget and there’s a fish and chip shop on site too.

Accommodation is in shared apartments of between 2 and 7 beds. All are very comfortable and complete with full kitchen, bathroom, large sofa, and French doors to let the spring weather in. Bedding is provided at minimal cost but feel free to bring your own, and please bring your own towels.

There are several local attractions in the area, including Conwy Castle, Llanberis Lake Railway and Great Orme Mines. We suspect you’ll be so consumed by what’s happening at Safe As Milk that you’ll miss all that but don’t forget the site is only 200yds from a beautiful wide expanse of beach that is 7 miles long and has snow-capped Snowdon sitting at the Western end of it – great place to blow out the morning cobwebs before you dive back into a full day of amazing music and more.

Getting Here

Aside from its excellent live music spaces and facilities, we chose Prestatyn for the first edition of Safe As Milk because of its great location and for being within easy reach of most of the UK.

You can be here by train from just about anywhere within 2 or 3 hours. Driving is simple too – between 90 minutes and 2.5 hours from Leeds, Nottingham, Manchester, within 3.5 hours from London, Newcastle, Bristol, Glasgow. The same trick applies for all – get yourself on the M6 and then join the M56 heading into North Wales and your almost here. Just follow the signs for Conwy and then Prestatyn.

We’re also just one hour’s drive (or around 2 hours by train) from Manchester and Liverpool airports.
