Festive fun for all the family is set to attract the crowds for an annual treat.

For almost 20 years "a much-loved event" has taken centre stage for hundreds of people in Oulton Broad, Lowestoft.

Lowestoft Journal:

And after the popular Carols on the Quay event returned with a bigger format last year, it will grace The Boulevard, Bridge Road and Nicholas Everitt Park in Oulton Broad once more on Sunday, December 10.

With numerous festive stalls, fun activities aplenty, live music, a Santa's Grotto and a craft fayre, the annual Christmas Carols event is again benefitting Nicholas Everitt Park Trust, as vital funds are raised for the NEPT charity to help maintain the park.

A spokesman for the event organisers said: "Now a much-loved event running for almost 20 years, a number of Bridge Road businesses - including Dave Dangerfield (DD Music Geek, 111a Bridge Road), Paula Howden (The Copper Smoke House 113 Bridge Road), Andrew Page (The Gift Shop, 119 Bridge Road) and Nikki Thomas (Sweet Obsession, 119a Bridge Road) - are involved in organising the event along with The Waveney Public House (132 Bridge Road), St Marks Church, The Nicholas Everitt Park Trust and Oulton Broad Parish Council."

Starting at 10am on Sunday, December 10 the event includes the craft fayre in the Park Pavilion; live music on The Boulevard; stalls on The Boulevard showcasing some local charities and organisations; mulled wine, mince pies and roasted chestnuts outside The Copper Smoke House; a free children's activity trail; face painting; Lowestoft Museum in the Park will be open with children's activities too and some of the animals from the Oulton Broad Mini Zoo will be down on Bridge Road.

Children can also pre-book for a visit to see Santa - costing £5 with a gift, but these must be booked in advance with some tickets still available from The Gift Shop and Sweet Obsession.

Carols around the Christmas tree in Oulton Broad, led by Rev Helen Jary from St Marks Church, is at 3pm.
