The soundtrack to your refreshing family break

7 January 2022


Have you found yourself gazing at the TV when our new advert comes on and suddenly you are tapping your feet and clicking your fingers? Our new Family.Refreshed. campaign is all about being upbeat and recharging your batteries, which a Center Parcs break is perfect for.

Did you know we contacted a children’s choir and recorded them singing their own version of the upbeat classic 'For once in my life' by Stevie Wonder?


“We instantly fell in love with the idea of using Stevie Wonder’s ‘For Once In My Life’ for our new advert. After a really difficult two years, we wanted to have a song that was upbeat, optimistic and made people feel good! But we also wanted to convey our brand essence – families – and how better to do that than to have a children’s choir singing the soundtrack.” - Andrew Regan, Senior Brand and Content Manager

Young Notes, a community interest company, who run youth choirs for young people aged from 3 - 21 from the local area to get involved with performing arts, were the chosen choir for our new TV advert.

Regan O’Mahony, Founder and Director of the Young Talent Academy, said: “When we were asked to take part in the Center Parcs advert, the students were so excited! The whole experience was really enjoyable, and the students were incredibly professional throughout – I’m so proud of them all."

Watch the below video to see behind the scenes of how the song was recorded and came together to form our new soundtrack.
