The Thursford Christmas Spectacular is the biggest and most exciting Christmas show of all time in Britain. Come and experience the popular blend of Christmas entertainment, with dazzling dancers, beautiful costumes, Christmas songs, carols, including outstanding music and singing from their cast of over one hundred.


Each show is a pageant of spectacle and colour - the music a seamless transition from an up-beat dance routine to a choral rendition of a Christmas carol, a show which would not be out of place in any London West End theatre.


It all started one Christmas, more than 25 years ago, when a small festive show took place in the rural location of Thursford. Featuring the choral scholars of King's College Cambridge, organisers had little idea that their seasonal offering would be the birth of what is now England's largest Christmas show.


The location may be remote, but each year thousands of visitors make an annual pilgrimage to experience the multi-million pound Thursford Christmas Spectacular.

The Auditorium is a grotto in itself. Antique carousels, fairground organs and steam engines, surround the 1,500 seats plus the whole lot is decked out with enough fairy lights to put a twinkle in everyone's eye. A magical show in a magical setting.





Please note: this original itinerary has been produced well ahead of the 2018 holiday season. All excursion content was correct at that time but could have been subject to change in the meantime. We reserve the right to make any changes necessary without prior notification.

Day 1

We travel from Kent to our base on the outskirts of Cromer in North Norfolk. A relaxing country drive on route to the Hotel with a stop for you to be able to either have a lunch break or a look around the area. We will then continue onwards to the Hotel for a late afternoon arrival giving you plenty of time to freshen up before your evening meal.


Day 2

After a leisurely breakfast, we leave the hotel and enjoy a drive along the North Norfolk coast with a coffee stop subject to time. We then aim to arrive at Thursford around 12pm, when the complex opens, so you can enjoy the range of 'olde worlde' shops and refreshments on offer. The show begins at 2pm and is an extravaganza of non-stop singing, dancing, music, humour and variety. It's a fast moving 3-hour celebration of the festive season featuring an electric mix of both seasonal and year-round favourites. Once the show has finished, we reboard the coach and return to the hotel in time for dinner.
