The Thursford Christmas Spectacular is generally recognised as the largest Christmas show in the country!


This amazing 3 hour show, with a cast of 130 professional singers, dancers and musicians, many of whom are West End performers is a truly magical celebration of the festive season.


Whether you are independent visitors or are a group organiser who would like to combine a visit to the Thursford Christmas Spectacular with a short break at the George Hotel, Swaffham please give us a call on 01760 721238 and let us know your specific requirements.


We offer more than just accommodation and being en-route to Thursford (from the South we are approx. 40 minutes (32miles) away) we are perfectly placed for that meal stop and comfort break.


Serving food from 10:45am, lighter bites such as sandwiches to a more substantial traditional roast turkey dinners are available.


For those of you travelling with a group or maybe a coach party we are well versed in the speed and efficiency required to ensure a swift yet enjoyable meal stop.


We have daily pre-organised meal stops and can offer a 2 or 3 Course meal.

Suggest 11.30am sit down for those going to 2pm show.

Suggest 3.00pm sit down for those going to the 7pm show

Or why not stop ‘post’ show

Suggest 6.15pm on way back from 2.00pm show
