Keen singers should start warming up their vocal cords, as tickets go on sale for one of the Eastern Daily Press's most-loved seasonal traditions.

St Andrew's Hall will this year play host to the EDP Festival of Carols and now is your chance to get your hands on tickets for the event, which will be held on Wednesday, December 7.

'It's always a lovely concert and it's quite a tradition now,' said Carole Tims, who is the musical director of the event for the 30th year. I often hear people say they feel like Christmas has started once they have been to the EDP Festival of Carols.'

The choir will once again be joined by Broadland Youth Choir and Cawston Band for the concert. And the 2016 musical programme will include favourites such as Away In A Manger, Joy To The World, John Rutter's New Year Carol and Twelve Days Of Christmas and Pearsall's In Dulci Jubilo.

The concert is raising funds for the EDP We Care Appeal: Norfolk Millennium Trust for Carers.

The EDP We Care Appeal aims to help elderly, infirm, sick or disabled people in Norfolk by giving financial or practical support to their unpaid carers.

Tickets to the EDP Festival of Carols – which cost £7.50 per person – are available by visiting the EDP Norwich front office at Prospect House, Rouen Road.
