It is clear to see why the Thursford Christmas Spectacular tends to get booked up months in advance!!! If you like Forty Second Street, Top Hat, River Dance, etc., and REALLY like Christmas, it’s well worth the trek to the Norfolk village. The grounds are turned into an old fashioned Christmas scene with quaint shops and a trip around Fantasy Land with moving penguins, polar bears and bears makes you feel like you’re a child again!! In all, over 6,500,000 lights are used. And then there’s a 3 hour show!!
The show involves West End standard performers with top notch dancers and singers in glittering costumes. The organist on the Wurlitzer has been as Thursford for the past 37 years and 40 years at Blackpool tower. The juggler was surprisingly impressive and the compère was hilarious. It was a super long day getting there and back but we’ll definitely go again next year. Wow wow wow!!!!!!!!
