Reasons for trip

The Christmas Spectacular is a truly amazing experience. It is a winter wonderland of lights, carnival memorabilia and working fairground rides. The approach to the big barn (seating 1500) where the music and dance show is held, is lined with trees decorated in an array of colourful lights, this leads to a few beautifully presented shops stocking Christmas gift ideas and locally produced jams, marmalades, chocolate and drinks. There is a marquee that sells hot and cold snacks and in the barn is a fully licenced bar but amenities aside, what makes this a unique experience is the show itself. It would easily rival a West End show, the costumes are beautifully made, the singers and dancers are professional and the band and orchestra tuneful. I think the sheer size of the stage is breathtaking and the large cast move into the audience at times truely making you feel part of the experience. The seating is relatively comfortable with padded seats and the access is all on one level with wide gangways. You will need trasnport to get here but several big coach operators do this trip as part of a Norfolk winter package. 2015 was our first visit but certainly won’t be our last.
