If you want some truly rotten entertainment this Christmas, a Norwich charity is performing carols with a difference across the city to raise money and support people with physical and mental health issues in Norwich.

Theatre group The Common Lot and charity Mind the Gap have collaborated for another year to bring punk rock carols to the city.

Mind the Gap is an inclusive music group that provides a friendly, safe environment to socialise with fellow musicians and develop their instrumental, songwriting and vocal skills.

Their first performance took place across Norwich on Saturday afternoon at locations including The Birdcage at Pottergate and Gentleman's Walk, next to the market.

Traditional carols were performed with a punk twist, including White Christmas, In the Bleak MidWinter and Jingle Bells.

You can next watch the punk carols on Thursday December 15 from 5.30pm outside Jarrold on London Street.
