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.
