Carols, candlelight and Christmas spirit will fill a historic city centre church when the Evening News Carols for Christmas event returns for another year.

The night of song and seasonal joy will this year take place at St Peter Mancroft Church, in Norwich, on Tuesday, December 13, and tickets for the event are now on sale.

The beautiful medieval church will be filled with candles for the occasion and the programme will feature traditional carols and readings. As in previous years, the service will be raising funds for the Mancroft Advice Project (MAP), a charity which offers support and advice to young people to help them find their way in the world.

Evening News editor David Powles said: 'Every year scores of people have a wonderful evening at our carol concert and it's always a sign that the festive period is well under way.

'It's one of the highlights of the Christmas calendar and raises lots of money for a vitally important charity.

'I hope anyone who is able to attend gets fully behind it.'

Doors will open at 5pm and the service will begin at
