Meanwhile, there will be numerous other bands performing around the town, as well as a live nativity scene at the Wymondham Baptist Church in Queen Street.

There will be reindeer in Fairland Street, a drama presentation by the Slow Theatre Company, story-telling in the library and a mulled wine trail, among many other activities.
