The Thursford Christmas Spectacular is the biggest and most exciting Christmas Show of all time in Britain and is a show not to be missed. Set in the magical surroundings of mechanical organs and fairground carousels, with a cast of 130 professional singers, dancers and musicians – many of whom are West End performers. The 3 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 sung alongside traditional carols.
Day 1. Thursday We depart and travel to Fakenham for the matinee performance of the Thursford Christmas Spectacular. The three hour 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. We depart Thursford on completion of the show for the journey to Norwich and the Holiday Inn. This evening enjoy a three course evening meal and then spend a relaxing evening in the hotel.
Day 2. Friday We depart after breakfast and enjoy free time in Norwich. Norwich is the most complete medieval city in Britain with fascinating museums, two cathedrals, a Norman castle, cobbled streets, half-timbered houses and over 30 medieval churches within the city walls. Within the city's Cathedral Quarter, Norwich Cathedral is perhaps Norwich’s most famous landmark. With its soaring spire, (the second highest in Britain), it’s one of the most beautiful cathedrals in England. It’s not hard to see why Norwich ranks so highly for shopping with major high street names sitting alongside independent retailers. We depart later this afternoon to make our journey home.
