While on Sunday, December 11 Lowestoft Vision hosted festive songs around the Christmas tree with performances from Lowestoft Signing Choir, Cantors, Lowestoft Longshoreman, The Marina Theatre's Beauty and the Beast and the DPA show choir.

Darren Newman added: 'There was a fantastic atmosphere in the town on Saturday for the parade and we would like to thank all of those who took part and especially to John Grose for kindly providing the car for Beauty and the Beast's Belle and Santa.

'On Sunday it was great to see local talent perform in the town and we are really grateful to all those involved.'
