From a crib service to Christmas processions and midnight mass, hundreds of people have been enjoying festivities at Norwich Cathedral.
Christmas Eve saw scores of children and their families gather at the Cathedral for an informal crib service where youngsters were encouraged to come along dressed as characters from the Nativity story.
The Cathedral’s Sunday School helped bring the story of the birth of baby Jesus to life before all the children in the congregation were invited to join a procession to the crib and lead the singing of Away in a Manger.
Meanwhile on both Sunday and Christmas Eve, the sublime sound of the Norwich Cathedral Choir moved around the Cathedral for the Christmas Procession with Carols which featured festive music including Once In Royal David’s City, O Little Town Of Bethlehem and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.
