Friday 8th November 2019.  
 
This is a most popular extravaganza, of non-stop singing, dancing, music, humour and variety: a fast-moving celebration of the festive season featuring an eclectic mix of both seasonal and year-round favourites. With a cast of 120 professional singers, dancers and musicians, most of whom are straight from the West End, this is the biggest Christmas show of its kind in Europe! It is set in the magical surroundings of mechanical organs and fairground carousels with the auditorium impressively ablaze with colour. It features famous and much loved chart toppers being performed alongside traditional carols. The Christmas Spectacular 2018 was the biggest yet. Up to 50 coaches per day travel from many part of the country and many of the 5.7 million patrons to date have visited year on year. Thursford is near Fakenham, in Norfolk.
 
There are still a few seats available for other U3As to join us on what promises to be a most varied, enjoyable day.  We shall leave by coach, which has WC facilities, from outside the charity shops in the parade of shops on Main Street, Burton Joyce, at 8.30am, then after a break during the journey, will arrive at The Refectory at Walsingham Priory for a 2-course roast lunch, with mince pies, tea or coffee. The hamlet of Thursford is only a short distance away and after lunch we will continue our journey in readiness for the 2pm matinee performance. At the end of the performance we will board our coach for the return journey to Burton Joyce where we expect to arrive around 7.45pm.
 
The cost of £67, made up of £13 per person for the coach, £14.50 roast lunch and £39.50 for the performance seat. You are welcome to join us so please contact Alwyn Foster by phone on 0115 931 2571 or e-mail Chairman@BJU3A.co.uk
