This is the ultimate in seasonal experiences. Since its debut in 1977, The Thursford Christmas Spectacular has become a favourite annual event. With over one hundred performers, the three-hour show is a blend of exiting Christmas entertainment, with Christmas songs, carols, dazzling dancers, beautiful costumes and outstanding music making it the largest Christmas Show in the Country.
Set in a small village north of Norwich is one of the best Christmas shows around. Almost anyone new to the Thursford story will find it hard to get their head around the concept of a small village in rural north Norfolk hosting one of the biggest Christmas shows in Europe.
It all started in 1977 with a small carol concert in a barn and now attracts visitors from worldwide. The show itself features in excess of 130 dancers, singers and musicians. This year’s budget is in excess of £4million pound. So, let us take on a wonderful Christmas Journey with over three hours of entertainment, fantastic costumes, stunning stage design and some of the best entertainers around.
Combine the show with our four-star hotel accommodation with evening meal, bed and breakfast and some free time in Norwich included you are bound to being festive. Norwich City is a medieval town which still holds on to its charm, with its city wall and a wealth of historic buildings all of which enable the visitor to imagine life here in medieval times. The Norman Cathedral is one of the finest in England, with its magnificent cloisters and Cathedral close. The Castle has a fantastic 12th century keep, stands proud looking out over the city. This is in stark contrast to the very modern city, with its shops and riverside gardens. Linking the modern and the old town is a web of cobbled streets, alleys and lanes. Norwich is also considered one of the best shopping destinations in the UK and has all your normal high street stores, but also some great individual and designer stores too
