We make no apology for including another short break to North Norfolk for the spectacular Christmas Spectacular at Thursford. It is a unique and magical show, and probably the best production of its kind in the UK. Thousands of people make the annual pilgrimage to this collection of former farm buildings that have been home to the Show since it began as a simple carol concert in 1977. There is music, both traditional and contemporary, carol singing, dazzling dancers, glittering costumes and outstanding singing from a cast of over 100, not to mention a starring role from the mighty Wurlitzer organ. If you have never been before then Thursford is an absolute must. And if you are a regular visitor we guarantee that there will be something new to enthral and entertain.
