The nationwide Group Travel Awards, which were held at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel in London, saw Thursford Christmas Spectacular win against fellow 2019 nominees including Royal Ascot and Edinburgh Tattoo.

Now in its 43rd year, Thursford Christmas Spectacular will run for seven weeks during the festive season from November 6 to December 23, with many performances already sold out.

Britain's Got Talent finalist Steve Hewlett is new to Thursford Christmas Spectacular for 2019. The comedian and ventriloquist will introduce this year's speciality acts including one of the world's top acrobats Billy George and international roller skating double act Royer and Emelie.

Over 3000 West End and Broadway performers auditioned this year for the company of over 120 dancers, singers and musicians who will perform show-tunes, chart toppers and classic Christmas carols.
