We love Christmas at The King William. One of our highlights in the Norfolk festive season is undoubtedly the Thursford Christmas Spectacular. One of the largest and most impressive shows of its kind in Europe, the event is one that no lover of Christmas should be without.
What is the Thursford Christmas Spectacular? The pretty village of Thursford, just half an hour from The King William, is home to this annual festive show featuring a cast of 130 singers, dancers and musicians, many of whom have performed in the West End. A three-hour extravaganza, the Thursford Christmas Spectacular has it all. From solo singers and heart warming carols to huge show-stopping choruses and chart topping favourites, there’s guaranteed to be something for everyone at this magnificent celebration of the festive season. What’s more, as the spectacle takes place in a theatre surrounded by mechanical organs, fairground carousels and other festive features, the audience will be transported into the seasonal spirit from the moment they arrive.
Attending the Thursford Christmas Spectacular Though many of the tickets for the show sell out early in the year, there are often some seats to be had right up until the last performance. This year, the extravaganza kicks off on the 11th November and runs through to the 23rd December. Many days feature two performances, giving everyone plenty of chances to see this impressive festive feature.
