Once again we have secured our place at the largest and arguably the best Christmas show in the country! In its 47th year, the Thursford Spectacular promises to be the biggest and best ever! It is set in the magical surroundings of mechanical organs and fairground carousels, with a cast of 120 professional singers, dancers and musicians – most of whom are straight out of the West End. The three-hour performance delivers an extravaganza of non-stop singing, dancing, music, humour and variety. It’s a fast-moving celebration of the festive season featuring an eclectic mix of both seasonal and year-round favourites, with famous and much-loved chart toppers being performed alongside traditional carols. Our 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!
