IPSWICH: You’ve started your shopping and begun planning the big day but now it’s time to shake your jingle bells.

The Evening Star 125 Carol Service is back to spread Christmas cheer - only this year we are on the move and we’re taking the choirs with us.

Last year’s night to remember was held in St Margaret’s Church and saw performances from schoolchildren from Sprites Primary School.

Set to take place on Monday, December 20, at St Mary-le-Tower Church, this year’s yuletide event will bring a festive feel to the town.

With the evening set to be bigger then ever, it will be the perfect opportunity to celebrate The Evening Star’s landmark 125th birthday.

The double celebration will be marked with a night full of congregational carols and a range of performances by local choirs.

The Evening Star’s editor, Nigel Pickover, said: “The carol service is such a great event because it really brings the Christmas spirit to Ipswich.

“Tickets always sell out quickly so I urge people to get in there quick.”

Festive fun will also see up to 100 Christmas trees displayed at St Mary-Le-Tower church, based in the heart of the town.

The Christmas display will take place between December 2 and 7.

Tickets to the Evening Star 125 Carol Service cost £2 and are available from The Evening Star offices in Lower Brook Street.

Proceeds go towards the Evening Star’s Christmas Appeal, which will benefit guide dogs.

Alternatively, a cheque - payable to Archant Regional Limited – can be sent to Jo Reeder, The Evening Star Christmas Carol Service, 30 Lower Brook Street, Ipswich, IP4 1AN.
