Christmas Superb Spectacular

If you can’t get tickets for this year’s Thursford Christmas Spectacular don’t miss out next year. This was the best night ever, a three hour nonstop musical and variety show. So professional, so funny, superb music, dancing and other brilliant variety acts.

From start to finish this show lived up to it's name and we are already making plans to go again next year. The performers including speciality acts, dancers, singers, orators and musicians all gave faultless performances. We congratulate all those involved for giving us an evening of superb entertainment.

We drove from Nottingham to Cromer Norfolk to see the Thursford Spectacular. The whole experience was amazing, all the shops & events to look round before the show were fabulous. The show itself was superb.Every act was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole show.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Thursford Christmas Spectacular. Excellent entertainment throughout with wonderful music, dancers, singers and speciality acts. All compared by the very amusing "Kev Orkian" - a real character!!

This was our second time to Thursford and our families first time.
We ate in the cafe before hand, lovely sandwiches and a great selection. Had a look around the shops which were very busy!
We sat right at the front to the side this time and so glad we did. Everything about this show from start to finish was absolutely amazing, this show was certainly better than the one we’d seen previously a few years ago. Kev the comedian was just superb, we’d pay good money to see him do his own stand up, and I’ve told him so! Must say I was a bit shocked when I found him on social media and heard him speak……
If you haven’t been to see the show then you MUST!

We went to see the lights and enjoyed it. Our young child also enjoyed it very much. There was plenty to see and a cafe half way round if needed. It was quite expensive given that it only took an hour but we still enjoyed it.

Just back from yet another amazing, magical, spectacular show. Amazing as always! Absolutely stunning costumes, scenery, atmosphere. Out of this world corography…brilliant, very talented dancers, singing, music, orchestra and organist. Kevin, the comedian was brilliant! The whole show and everyone in it was outstanding! Getting ready to book next years…thank you all for such a beautiful afternoon. Your talents and hard work make this a show to remember….and to see year after year. Well done!!!

Magical
Nov 2021 • Friends
This was our first visit to Thursford Christmas show and all I can say is WOW!!!. What an amazing feel good show which really gets you in the Christmas spirit. The acts rival anything I have seen in the West End and it would be difficult to pick out my favourite act. Everything from Irish dancers to jugglers, comedy to the most beautiful choir ever. I must say I thought the compere really was the icing on the cake - so funny and also such an awesome pianist. So much attention to detail has gone into the decorations both inside and out and, although a little pricey, do buy a ticket for a walk round fantasy land before the show because it is truly magical. Simply loved every minute of our time here.
