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 HOTEL is an Elizabethan-style mansion built in 1859, a few miles from Norwich. It is one of the well-respected Q-Hotels chain, and has benefited from a recent £2million investment, with refurbished bedrooms and bathrooms, and improved leisure facilities. This 4-star hotel retains a traditional elegance amidst 150 acres of landscaped grounds. The public areas include an elegantly decorated bar and restaurant. Bedrooms have Freeview television, hairdryer, tea and coffee tray and complimentary Wi-Fi. Leisure facilities include an indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. There is a lift.
Day 1 - By taxi to the coach to join your driver and fellow passengers. We drive to Norwich. The City is a fusion of the modern and the historic. With the River Wensum at its heart, it is an easy place to explore, and there will be time to find lunch and visit the Norman Cathedral. The undercover market is one of the largest and oldest in the country. This afternoon we continue to our hotel, for a two-night stay with dinner and breakfast included.
Day 2 - 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 - 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 little Christmas shopping before we continue home to Sussex.
