Reasons for trip

We were expecting great things from this show having read the reviews and we were not disappointed! The show really is SPECTACULAR with 130 performers, including singers, dancers, comedian, juggler, there is a live orchestra The organist is brilliant and a mighty Wurlitzer organ. The show lasts 3 hours with a 25 minute break in the middle and from the opening number to the grand finale it never failed to deliver and was well worth the £35 cost of the ticket. We booked quite late (August) and were worried that our seats wouldn’t be good, but the stage is huge and you get a pretty good view from wherever you are. It is advisable to book early though, they start taking bookings for the 2018 show from 24th December…… yes, its that popular!! The Fantasy Land/Santas Magical Journey was the real highlight for me, and you can take photo’s in here too, there are some really jaw dropping tableaus and my wife said my face was a picture the whole way round, and at £9, you might think its a bit expensive but for all you get to see, its really not. A definite must whether you have children with you or not! My one criticism would be, that the perifierals, eg. food and drink and shops are very expensive, we paid £13.50 for 2 sandwiches and crisps and coffee, which were served in/on disposable plates and cups and definitely nothing special. Also, given the sheer numbers of people who attend, it can get very busy leading up to the main show, and the shop/cafe area becomes a bit of a bottleneck and a free for all, but don’t let that put you off, it really is the most amazing place/show and I can see why people return year after year. We will definitely be back.
