In popular culture
The 1973 British film Holiday on the Buses was filmed at and set in the Prestatyn resort. A plaque was erected in 2004 at the main entrance gates (unchanged since the film) to note this event. The same venue hosts professional snooker each year. Prestatyn Sands also hosts the finals for the annual Brass Band Festival historically, the qualifying rounds were held in other Pontins centres.
The previous On The Buses film, Mutiny on the Buses (1972), depicted buses carrying adverts with the slogan “Go Pontinental”, implying that Hammer Film Productions had already established a working relationship with Pontins with a view to shooting a future film at one of their resorts.
