'Glowstick grannies' to descend on Ibiza as Saga creates holidays for 'pioneer clubbers

This was the headline in the UK’s Daily Mail.

The opening text tells us:
Ibiza has long been famed as a place where the party never stops. But the famous Spanish island is set to prove this point in a literal way in 2014 - when it welcomes its first club-resort aimed exclusively at party-goers aged 50 and over.

If this sounds like surprising news, an even greater shock is that the resort will be run by Saga Holidays - a company more associated with leisurely breaks for silver travellers.

And so the article goes on. It is amazing how many seemed to have taken this as a serious announcement rather than as a April Fool’s joke.

I would have thought his sentence would have given it away.

Saga will be encouraging grannies to pick up their glowsticks and head to the Balearic isle for third-age fun at its resort for 'pioneer clubbers'.

Maybe Saga should give it some thought? Certainly it would be better than a week on a coach touring the delights of Devon. Dick Stroud
