The Thursford Christmas Spectacular Show!

The largest Christmas show in England with a cast of 100 professional singers, dancers and musicians also visiting Cambridge.

The Christmas Show at Thursford first took place thirty years ago against the background of mechanical organs with eight choral scholars from Kings College, Cambridge singing a selection of John Rutter carols and it has now grown into the largest Christmas show in England. The ultimate Christmas musical experience is simply one of the most exciting Christmas shows ever. The show is a blend of Christmas entertainment with choral carols, dazzling dancers, beautiful costumes, outstanding music and a cast of over one hundred. Each show is a pageant of spectacle and colour; the music a seamless transition from an up-beat dance routine to a choral rendition of Christmas carols and the show would not be out of place in any of London’s West End theatres!

The Christmas Spectacular Show is held at the home of the Thursford Collection, a unique museum which is located in the tranquil setting of the small Norfolk village of Thursford. The museum houses a collection of mechanical organs from small street organs right up to a mighty Wurlitzer cinema organ, however kindly note that due to the staging of the Christmas Show the museum exhibits will not be open to the public but the refreshment and toilet facilities will be available on the day.
