Thursford Collection


Thursford Collection is open during the summer as a working museum of mechanical organs, Wurlitzer shows, silent movies, old fashioned fairground carousels and static displays of both fairground engines and road engines and all kinds of related memorabilia. There is also a behind the scenes tour, taking in dressing rooms, costume stores, wardrobe, Fantasy Island, and engine yard with videos of how the engines would have been used. During November and December we stage the nationally acclaimed Christmas Spectacular Shows with a cast of 130 professional singers, dancers and musicians, and also the amazing animated Santa's Magical Journey and visit to Father Christmas.
