Established as a firm favourite in the Roadmark calendar, a visit to the Thursford Christmas Spectacular is a must in the run-up to the festive season. If you have seen it before, you will know what to expect from this lavish show which rivals anything you are likely to see in the West End. If it is your first visit, you are in for a real treat, as a cast of 130 professional singers, dancers and musicians set the stage alight in the magical surroundings of mechanical organs and fairground carousels. Each show is a pageant of spectacle and colour with twinkling lights and amazing costumes. Thursford is the largest Christmas show in the country and draws thousands of visitors every year to this sleepy corner of rural Norfolk. Book early to avoid disappointment.
Your Holiday Hotel
DUNSTON HALL combines Elizabethan and Victorian styles. The 4-star Hotel is set in 150 acres of landscaped grounds a few miles from Norwich. It is one of the well-respected Q-Hotels chain, with spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, and leisure facilities including a heated indoor pool and sauna. The public areas include an elegantly decorated bar and restaurant. Bedrooms have everything you would expect to find in a hotel of this standard, including Freeview television, hairdryer, tea and coffee tray and complimentary Wi-Fi. There is a lift.
(DAY 1) Sunday 24th November
By taxi to the coach to join your driver and fellow passengers. We drive to Bury St.Edmunds for a lunch stop. The Suffolk town is an historic gem, with medieval architecture, Georgian squares and St.Edmundsbury Cathedral. Although the date had not been confirmed at the time of our brochure publication, November 24th is likely to be the Christmas Fayre, a real bonus with around 300 stalls and a traditional street market. This afternoon we continue to our hotel, for a two-night stay with dinner and breakfast included.
(DAY 2) Monday 25th November
Time to enjoy a leisurely breakfast and relax with the newspapers, before we leave for Thursford. Every performance is usually a sell-out, so it pays to arrive early to allow time for a snack and to browse in the gift shop. The Show commences at 2pm, and there is an interval halfway through. Once the applause has ended we board the coach to return to the hotel.
(DAY 3) Tuesday 26th November
Our lunchtime stop today will be in Colchester. It is Britain’s oldest recorded town and has a unique heritage and history. Time for something to eat and a spot of Christmas shopping before we continue home to Sussex and meet the waiting taxis.
