Thursford’s Christmas Spectacular has attracted more 5.8 million visitors to date and is the largest Christmas show in the country.

Surrounded by mechanical organs and fairground carousels, it has a cast of 120 professional singers, dancers and musicians – most of whom are straight out the West End. The three hour performance delivers non-stop singing, dancing, music, humour and variety.

Last year's event was cancelled due to coronavirus, but resumed this year.
