It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas with the return of the famous festive tree festival in Fakenham.
For almost 20 years, Fakenham Parish Church has opened its doors to host one of the most popular Christmas events in Norfolk.
This year the church will be inviting more than 30,000 people to view the abundance of trimmings on 56 Christmas trees.
All trees are decorated by charities both local and national, including Mother's Union, Fakenham Air Training Corps and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust which is returning for its 18th year.
People are encouraged to bring along coins and place them in the buckets found at the front of the charities' tree.
Last year the event raised almost £18,000.
The festival runs from today until Thursday, December 5 between 10am and 8pm daily, except on Sunday when it will be open between noon and 8pm.
