There is nothing quite like a carol concert to get you in the festive spirit.

Everyone is invited to the borough’s Civic Carol Service, which will take place at Great Yarmouth Minster next Monday at 7pm.

It will be the first carol concert at the Minster since the new team rector Rev Canon Simon Ward and the new director of music Martyn Marshall joined the team this year

The service will be led by Rev Simon and will include prayers, readings and carol-singing, as well as the presentation of the awards for the Christmas Tree and Crib Festival by Kerry Robinson-Payne, the mayor.

The high sheriff of Norfolk, Mr James Bagge, will also be in attendance.

The seventh annual Christmas Tree and Crib Festival will also be taking place at the same time, with a spectacular display of Christmas trees and cribs in the Minster, created by local community groups, businesses and schools.
