Thursford Christmas
Spectacular, Norfolk

Tuesday 19 December 2017




Experience the glitz and glamour of the biggest Christmas Show in the UK. Every year the Thursford Christmas Spectacular draws almost a 130,000 people to an amazing show that combines traditional Christmas themes with Las Vegas excitement and West End production values. From its humble beginnings as a small-scale carol concert in an old shed the Thursford Christmas Spectacular is now firmly on the top of everyone’s ‘must see’ list, so why not make this year your year?

We will spend one night at the imposing Dunston Hall Hotel just outside Norwich, where you will be able to soak up some Norfolk Christmas atmosphere in the countryside. Our two day tour begins with a lunch stop at the Anglesey Abbey Gardens & Lode Mill near Cambridge, where you will have time for a leisurely stroll to enjoy the pretty winter gardens and a light lunch in the Redwoods Restaurant. After arriving at the stately 4* Dunston Hall Hotel mid-afternoon, you will have plenty of time to relax in the hotel before our 3-course dinner in the hotel restaurant. You will also have time to enjoy the swimming pool and spa facilities, or a stroll around the gardens in the morning after a buffet breakfast.

Thursford is also the home of the Thursford Collection – an assortment of steam engines and organs housed in a museum. The collection was founded by the late George Cushing as a hobby. The collection includes a Mighty Wurlitzer which is the fourth-largest in Europe and has a total of 1,339 pipes. There is also a 19th-century gondola merry-go-round which was built in the Norfolk factory of Frederick Savage. The merry-go-round is decorated with carved heads depicting Queen Victoria and her family, including the German Kaiser Wilhelm II.
