A yuletide market is returning to a north Norfolk town with a mission to unite the entire community this Christmas.

Stalham's Yuletide Market, organised by The Stalham Area Business Forum, will take place on December 3 between midday and 4pm.

A variety of festive crafts, food, drinks and gifts will be on offer at the market which aims to help local charities and celebrate Norfolk businesses.

The entirety of Stalham's High Street will be filled with stalls, with even more sellers to discover in the town hall. 

Visitors can get into the festive spirit with music from The Scratch Band, while Carol and Paula will be performing Christmas music to the high street from outside the old Barclays Bank.

Diana Cornell, one of the market's organisers, said: "It's a lovely Christmas experience in the town, bringing in people we wouldn't normally have visiting.

"It's a big thing for Stalham as a whole."
