We had a great weekend
« on: December 12, 2016, 07:57:55 pm »


Hi all went to our friends caravan at hunstanton this weekend nipped into the local model shop and cheap shop and picked up these.






My missus sometimes looks at me like I've gone mad when I grab something and say this will be great for my model.
Can you guess what the stickers are for.
We also went to the Thursford spectacular, as always it was amazing (they are very strict about videoing or photography so here are a few pics from the brochure)








Of course you can also see some of the steam engines




And it's all lit up outside.

Love Thursford, it's one of my first memories going on holiday in Norfolk when I was about 5 years old. I remember seeing Mr Wolfe playing the amazing Wurlitzer organ that used to light up. Is the fairground ride still working in the main building? I have been there for a few years now.

Better get your booking in for next year now or you'll miss out.  Larger cast than most west end shows. Wonderful and the fairground stuff is well worth a look.,

Coming from the area, I can tell you Thursford is a wonderful place for all ages, and if you can get a ticket for the Christmas carol service [which are as rare as the carousel horse poo] with the steam driven organ playing the carol music, you are in for the most wonderful experience you could have.


It's a wonderful place at any time of year, but very special at this time Christmas time of year.

I wholly agree, we've booked for next year, did the same last year they will be sold out by the end of January, there are never any free seats.
