Thursford Christmas Spectacular

Grand UK Holidays – the sister brand of just for groups! – has revealed a new Winter Gold Collection of five-day festive touring holidays for groups.

The seasonal trips include a Four-star Dorset and Royal Marines in Concert break, which will feature a visit to Winchester Christmas market and the chance to see the band of the Royal Marines in concert.

The new range also offers a Four-star Northumbria and Cinderella holiday, which includes excursions in Northumberland as well as a trip to the pantomime in Newcastle.

Additionally, a Four-star Brighton and RAF in Concert break will tour the south coast and feature a trip to the RAF concert at Eastbourne’s Congress Theatre.

Meanwhile, Grand UK’s range of trips to UK Christmas markets has seen the addition of new locations such as the Leeds Christkindelmarkt and Ludlow, while continental options include a Rhine river cruise.

There are 32 breaks over the Christmas period, some of which can be combined with a New Year holiday too.

Harold Burke, sales director at just for groups!, said: “The breaks are in the Grand UK Holidays brochure, which is always popular with our group travel clients as it gives them a great overview of what’s new and what’s available in the coming 12 months.

“The latest brochure features perennial group festive favourites such as Christmas markets, the Thursford Christmas Spectacular, along with newer options such as the Royal Marines Christmas Spectacular.”

All Winter Gold holidays include hotels of a three and four star standard; a special reception and a welcome pack; a commemorative photograph; and coach travel in a Golds coach.

Grand UK Holidays is part of The UK Holiday Group, which includes just for groups!, SunriseDirect and Glenton Holidays.
