The Military Wives are back and a choir from RAF Marham will be performing at Norwich Cathedral next month.
'Home for Christmas', a collection of 12 carols and songs, features the voices of 1,006 wives, from 65 choirs across the country and overseas, including RAF Marham.
All the choirs can be heard on the title track 'Home for Christmas', and the album also features six classic carols which have been updated with lyrics reflecting what Christmas means to women in the military community.
The album will be released on November 25 and the title track as a single on December 2.
To accompany the releases, 17 choirs, including RAF Marham, are taking part in performances at cathedrals across the country.
Mother-of-one Gemma Riley, 31, is chairman of the Military Wives Choir Marham, which consists of 48 women, 60pc of whom must be wives of active service personnel or serving personnel themselves.
She said: 'We are singing in Norwich alongside Wattisham and Honington on November 26. All concerts start at 7.30pm and tickets are available on Ticketmaster.
