Thousands wrapped up against the winter weather as they headed to the seaside to witness reindeer prancing around the church and Christmas carols ringing out from speakers.

A Christmas market was also on throughout the day in the Parish Hall and on the high street.

Gary Dickenson, president of the Cromer Chamber of Trade said: 'Once again Cromer provides the best light switch on event in north Norfolk.

'We've welcomed thousands of people to the town across the day and helped them get ready for Christmas.'
