Thursford Christmas Spectacular

Trevor Smith on 13 November 2008
Another one of my "mini trips" for my mum and her friends - a three day weekend to Norfolk with the highlight of the weekend being the 'Thursford Christmas Spectacular'.

Three days with six different attractions to discover and enjoy for a late Autumn break staying at the four star Ramada at Kings Lynn, great for the ambience and the hospitality of all their staff.

Setting off after breakfast from Kent, the first stop was Tiptree Jam museum, shop and tea rooms with a lunchtime stop in Norwich to visit the Castle and Cathedral.

After breakfast, a short visit in Fawkenham to look around this historic town before going to the highlight of this mini break - 'the Thursford Christmas Spectacular' - much to do with the many Christmas gift shops and restaurants and a visit to the Thursford Christmas Fantasyland, before the main show started.

The show lasted three hours with a twenty minute break and was the best show I have ever seen, on the largest stage I have seen!

The cast of over hundred entertained throughout with many costume changes to celebrate the season and Christmas, being fully booked every year for many years now - I definitely will be going again and next year will be that time.

The last day, returning home, we stopped at Caithness Glass Outlet in Kings Lynn before a fantastic visit the Shuttleworth Collection near Biggleswade.

As you can see from the above, this is a tour that I had put together myself with the minibus so that my mother and her friends would have a break to enjoy with no stress and no long days - this is a service that I can offer to anyone!
