Photo gallery: Crowd enjoy Bungay Christmas lights switch on

Umbrellas were very much to the fore on Wednesday evening as crowds gathered around the Buttercross in Bungay town centre for the switching on of the Christmas lights.

Despite the wet conditions there was a good-sized crowd of all ages determined to enjoy the occasion.

Entertainment included performances from the Crocodile children's theatre group, Harmonique choir and the Joe Ringer Band.

Father Christmas, assisted by Town Reeve John Warnes, led the countdown before the town centre was lit up with festive lights.

To add a festive cheer the church bells started ringing as soon the lights went on.

The event was organised by the Bungay and District Chamber of Trade and many stores stayed open until 8pm so that people could do some Christmas shopping.

The Christmas festivities continue in Bungay on Sunday when the town hosts its street fair when scores of stalls selling a wide range of goods will line the Market Place and Earsham Street area.
