We, like you, were devastated to hear that Thursford Spectacular 2020 had to be cancelled. This incredible show is a firm favourite, and Woods customers return year after year. To support Thursford, and to give you all something amazing to look forward to, we are releasing our Thursford 2021 dates now! The Thursford Spectacular has been celebrating the festive season with a 3-hour fast moving pageant of spectacle and colour for over 40 years! The music creates a seamless transition from an up-beat dance routine to a choral rendition of A Christmas Carol and is a show which would not be out of place in any of London’s West End theatres. The dazzling scenery is the backdrop to a blend of exciting Christmas entertainment with carols, flamboyant dancers, beautiful costumes, outstanding music and singing from a cast of 130 professional singers, dancers and musicians! We are offering three alternative itineraries for this wonderful event – each with its own advantages and attractions. Each four-day tour includes a day at Thursford with time to have lunch before the matinee performance. Join us for this chance to enjoy the most popular English Christmas show of all time!
Day 1 We travel to the village of Old Hunstanton via the beautiful town of Lavenham.
