On Saturday, November 25, the festivities begin with a performance from the Oxblood Molly Dancers, who will be dancing in the streets from 3.15pm.

There will then be a musical performance from the Festival Voices, who will be singing a host of carols from 3.45pm.

From 5pm, the traditional Christmas procession will see Father Christmas and his sleigh joined by the Royal British Legion’s Leiston branch, parading from the library to St Mary’s Church. Santa will then be available to meet youngsters in his grotto for just £1.

At around 5.15pm, scarecrow competition winner Alexander Collier, eight, will lead the countdown and switch on the lights.

There will then be more live music from Vickes and the Kicks and The Blues Band.
