Christmas Shows in North Norfolk

The festive period is the perfect time to spend time together, and what better way to immerse yourself in the festive spirit than by experiencing the enchanting Christmas shows held in Norfolk? At the Kelling Estate, we believe in having unforgettable holiday experiences, and our luxury North Norfolk holiday cottages are perfectly positioned for you to enjoy your Christmas break, allowing you to explore the very best of what the region has to offer. This year we encourage you to visit some of our favourite local Christmas shows such as Thursford’s Christmas Spectacular and the Cromer Pier Christmas Show.

Thursford Christmas Spectacular

Just a 20-minute drive away from our holiday cottages, nestled in the picturesque Norfolk countryside, the Thursford Christmas Spectacular has become renowned as one of the must-see Christmas performances. This enchanting extravaganza has been entertaining audiences for over four decades, and each year it returns bigger and better than before.

Set in the Thursford collection, a well-known museum of steam engines and vintage vehicles, and with the option of visiting the Enchanted Journey of Light before the show, the spectacle transports you to a bygone era of glamour and music. With a live orchestra playing timeless carols, contemporary classics and festive melodies, you’ll soon enter the festive spirit. Over 120 professional singers, dancers and musicians deliver an extravaganza of non-stop singing, dancing and humour for you to enjoy, making it the largest show of its kind in the country.

Each year the performances start in November, with shows until just before Christmas. As it is so popular, and people travel from far and wide to attend, we highly recommend booking your tickets as far in advance as possible!

The Cromer Pier Christmas Show

Heading towards the coast, just a 20 minute drive from Kelling Estate following the beautiful scenary and you will reach Cromer, home to one of only five UK seaside Piers with a full working theatre. Cromer Pier offers a completely different yet equally captivating Christmas experience, combining the charm of the coast with the magic of the festive season.

The Cromer Pier Christmas Show features a diverse range of entertainment, from comedy sketches to musical performances, perfect for the whole family. The cast is mainly made up of professional local talent, showcasing the very best that Norfolk has to offer.

During the show, you can expect all the usual West End production including an 8-metre video wall delivering special effects, traditional sets and bespoke costumes.

After the show, you can take a stroll along the seaside town and indulge in some traditional British holiday treats like fish and chips and locally caught seafood, whilst admiring the beautiful Christmas lights. The show opens each year in late November and runs until the start of the new year.
