Christmas at The Control Tower

We love Christmas here at The Control Tower and for us it starts as soon as the real blue spruce tree is chosen from our local nursery... the magic begins on the 1st December.

We decorate the tower with our growing collection of beautiful vintage decorations and light the fire each morning and evening for cosy breakfasts and evenings tucked up with a warming tipple and a good read. Whether you want to book a special weekend away with your loved one during December or run away from all the work over Christmas Day itself we can offer you a relaxed stay.

We also have a few ideas if you are stuck for Christmas gifts... we have some beautiful art available for sale or why not give the gift of holidays yet to come with our gift vouchers. We make each voucher to order for any amount so it can suit any budget. We can add a control tower Christmas card too for an additional £2. Drop us a line to buy one today

Thursford Christmas Spectular

Thursford’s Christmas Spectacular has attracted over 5.4 million visitors to date and is the largest Christmas show in the country.

It is set in the magical surroundings of mechanical organs and fairground carousels, with a cast of 130 professional singers, dancers and musicians – many of whom are West End performers. The three hour performance delivers an extravaganza of non-stop singing, dancing, music, humour and variety. It’s a fast moving celebration of the festive season featuring an eclectic mix of both seasonal and year-round favourites, with famous and much-loved chart toppers being performed alongside traditional carols.
