The Thursford Collection
The Thursford Collection

The Thursford Collection Holiday Accommodation Guide

The Thursford Collection is the name of a museum that can be found in Thursford, and it houses a number of carnival organs and steam engines. The late George Cushing, a resident of the community, began his collection as a hobby and went on to establish what is now considered to be one of the most important steam and fairground museums in the world. The collection includes a Mighty Wurlitzer theatre organ, which features 1,339 pipes and is ranked as the fourth largest in Europe. In addition to that, there is a gondola roundabout that was built in Frederick Savage's Norfolk workshop back in the 19th century. Carvings embellishing the ride include depictions of Queen Victoria, various members of her family, and even German Emperor Wilhelm II.

The museum and its collection have benefited from additional attention thanks to the musical concerts that have been held during the summer and the winter. Tickets for the annual Christmas "Spectaculars" go on sale months in advance because of the large number of admirers who travel in large groups from different parts of the country to attend.

The episode of Dad's Army that aired on November 15, 1974 and was titled "Everybody's Trucking" featured an appearance and sound effect from a Wellershaus organ, which was one of the organs in the collection.
Since it first opened its doors in 1993, Thursford's Christmas Spectacular has been visited by more than 5.8 million people, making it the most popular Christmas show in the United States.

In the enchanting environment of mechanical organs and fairground carousels, one hundred and twenty professional singers, dancers, and musicians perform. The majority of these artists have recently come off the stage in West End.

The performance lasts for three hours and is comprised of constant acts of song, dance, comedy, and variety. It is a high-energy holiday extravaganza that features a wide range of popular songs from different decades, ranging from well-known modern hits to beloved classics, as well as some traditional carols thrown in for good measure. The songs are performed in the order that they became popular over the course of those decades.

We went to a lot of trouble to get there just so that our family could go see this Christmas variety event. It was jam-packed with activities that anyone could enjoy, and the performers were amazing. If you and your family are seeking for a Christmas experience that is one of a kind and truly memorable, then you should write this one down in your memory books. It was over three hours long, but there were breaks of a reasonable length, so the kids were able to make it through the whole thing. The vacation is going to cost a lot of money, but it will be money well spent.
