From Father Christmas in a grotto to live reindeer, a tree of wishes, lantern parade, music and a market, Dereham is set to sparkle brighter than ever this festive season.
It’s a quaint scene which has been repeated every December outside the tiny Church of St Mary Magdalene, on the Sandringham estate, for generations.
Nearer to home than the North Pole, the elves and reindeer are hard at work in a corner of our deepest countryside.
Final rehearsals are under way at Thursford, near Fakenham, which is home to the UK’s biggest Christmas show.
