A centre which educates children who have been seriously bullied is hosting a Christmas carol concert.

Red Balloon, a charity which has a handful of learning centres across the country, including in Norwich, will hold the event on December 21 at St Peter Mancroft church.

Over the past few years the concert has grown in popularity, with standing room only last year, and has performances from Hethersett Singers, Musicality and Invidia Voices.

The Lord Mayor, councillor David Fullman, and High Sheriff for Norfolk, James Bagge, will be attending.

The Red Balloon centres educate children who have suffered from serious bullying. Many have developed mental health issues and cannot attend mainstream schools.

The event is free to attend and there are no tickets, but donations at the end of the service are welcomed.
