Crowds gathered in Lowestoft as the town kicked off its Christmas celebrations.

The town centre was transformed into festive wonderland on Saturday, December 3, with Tracey, Joshua and Kevin Hall taking centre stage as winners of the competition to switch on the Christmas lights.

In a comment on the Discover Lowestoft Facebook page, Tracey said: "Thank you for the opportunity of turning the town's Christmas lights on.

"It was amazing."

They were joined for the big moment by Woody Bear from Pleasurewood Hills and TV presenter Tim Lindon.

Earlier, people enjoyed street entertainment with The Grinch, a giant penguin, a stilt walker and a human glitter ball.

There were also performances by Kerri Woodhouse, Gaby Starbuck, Group A, My Choir Rocks, the Venue of Performing Arts, Ormiston Denes Academy Performing Arts and the Jack and the Beanstalk panto cast.
