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!
