The countdown to Christmas is creeping up us on and today we invite all of our readers to join us for a special evening of carols.
This year, the EDP and Norwich Evening News have teamed up again for a carol service brimming with festive cheer at St Peter's Mancroft Church in Norwich on Tuesday, December 10.
The beautiful church will be illuminated by stunning candle light and will feature musical performances by the church's choral scholars and organist Julian Haggatt and the Broadland youth choir while raising money for a worthy cause.
EDP and Norwich Evening News editor David Powles said: "The Christmas carol concert is one of the highlights of the festive period and is always a memorable service which raises money for a great cause.
"It's a very popular night and I always look forward to meeting readers and thanking them for their support and handing out the odd mince pie or two."
All proceeds from our carol service will go towards the new Priscilla Bacon Hospice near to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, which will provide end-of-life care and support for both patients and their loved ones.

The new £12.4m hospice will have 24 beds and state-of-the-art facilities, and will include a room for families so they can stay together towards the end of life.
Doors will open at 6pm with the service scheduled to start at 7pm.
