The ultimate Christmas musical experience!

The 4 Day Tour to Thursford shown in our 2018 brochure was sold out within 2 weeks of release.  We have been fortunate to secure additional hotel accommodation and can now offer this additional 3 Day Tour to cater for the overwhelming demand - book early as we anticpate heavy demand again!

 

In 1977 against a background of steam engines, mechanical organs and fairground rides, a small Christmas show took place with eight choir scholars from Kings College, Cambridge singing carols – it has now grown into the largest Christmas show in England!  The show creates a magical Christmas of yester-year – a time of love, hope and giving.  The one element that encapsulates the spirit of Christmas more than any other is music and this show is truly the ultimate Christmas musical experience.  Combined with dazzling dancers, beautiful costumes and singing from a cast of over 100 – this show would not be out of place in any of London’s west end theatres!  So highly praised by previous Bluebird visitors and always massively over-subscribed, we are again delighted to offer this spectacular event.

 

we are now open for bookings on the same arrangements for 2019

Day 1

Morning departure from Dorset to St Albans for lunch - an historic city boasting a magnificent cathedral containing the shrine of St Alban. Resume that afternoon, across country to Norwich and after settling in a 3 course dinner is served in the restaurant.

Day 2

Coach transfer into Norwich city centre. Explore the maze of narrow cobbled streets around the Cathedral area or visit the Castle which dates back to the Norman conquest. Time for shopping and sightseeing. After an early lunch we make the 45 minute drive to Thursford and take our seats for a matinee performance of the famous Thursford Christmas Spectacular (start 2pm*) - the biggest and best Christmas Show in England - it has to be seen to be believed - set within the grounds of the famous Thursford Steam Museum. Return to hotel early evening where dinner awaits.
*Ticket allocations will be announced later - we may have to accept evening performance instead of matinee with consequent adjustment to itinerary.

Day 3
