EDP Festival of Carols to be broadcast by BBC Radio Norfolk on Christmas Day

This year's EDP Festival of Carols will be bringing some yuletide cheer to the airwaves tomorrow afternoon.

Around 700 people packed into St Andrew's Hall in Norwich for the annual service earlier this month, to raise funds for two local charities - the EDP We Care Appeal and East Anglia Children's Hospices.

The service will be broadcast between 1pm and 2pm on BBC Radio Norfolk - on 95.1FM, 104.4FM and 855MW.

The singing was led by the EDP Festival Choir, Cawston Band and the Broadland Youth Choir, with the service conducted by festival veteran Carole Tims and accompanied by organist Alan Morris.

Among the guests who delivered readings to the audience were Paddy Seligman, chairman of the EDP We Care Appeal, which has raised more than �1m to help Norfolk's carers.
