Whenever you stay at a holiday park, hotel or other similar venue, you may have the chance to enjoy some entertainment there. Many holiday venues offer the chance to enjoy some entertainment while you are there.
This might involve shows for the kids, theatrical presentations and even pub quiz nights. There are all kinds of opportunities to get involved and have a great evening as part of your holiday.
It would be uncommon for anyone enjoying the entertainment to suffer from a holiday entertainment injury during the process. However there still may be the chance something like this could happen. Fortunately it is indeed rare, mostly because very few people are ever in a situation where things like this will happen.
What could go wrong?
It depends on the nature of the entertainment. For example you could be in the front row watching someone acting or performing on stage. If they lost their balance and fell off the stage, hitting you in the process, you could be injured. However many times when a holiday entertainment injury does happen, it is far less dramatic than this.
For example it could simply be that the chairs and tables provided are not good enough for use. They could collapse, leading to you having a fall and hurting yourself. In another example there could be a chance you could slip and fall over as a result of walking on a wet floor that wasn’t adequately signed.
As you can see, all kinds of things might potentially happen, even though the odds of anything going wrong will indeed be very slim. Most people will have a great time, enjoy the entertainment and then return to their accommodation without incident.
How should you react if you are injured?
Obviously it depends on the injury. The most important thing is to report it, even if you don’t feel you were badly injured at the time. This is because some injuries don’t present themselves properly until later on.
For example you could fall and hurt your ankle, but it may not swell up and become painful until the next day.
