OH Little Town of Ipswich! The Evening Star is calling on you to become part of the biggest and best carol service around.

But hurry because time is running out and the tickets are heading out of the door fast.

So make sure you get your tickets in time to experience this traditional slice of Christmas festivity.

The annual service is to be held on Friday December 14 at St Margaret's Church in Ipswich, starting at 7.30pm.

The service has become part of the Christmas ritual of the town – and this year money raised will be going to our Christmas appeal for the Vicky Hall Memorial Pavilion.

This has always been a popular event and it is a highlight of the Christmas season at the church with choristers looking forward to singing everyone's favourite carols.

St. Margaret's vicar Rev David Cutts said: "The Evening Star Carol Service is very much part of Christmas at St Margaret's.

"It always attracts crowds of people and we look forward to welcoming many friends once again. It is a wonderful opportunity to reflect together on the true meaning of Christmas.

"All this will be in the context of a traditional carol service with a chance to sing some old favourites. Do come!"

Hundreds of people will be eager to get their hands on tickets for this year's service so don't miss out – it is expected that all 350 tickets to the event will quickly sell out.

Asda has kindly donated mince pies which will be given away free to everyone that attends the service. And for congregation members with hearing difficulties, the Christmas carols will also be signed.

This year there's a nominal £1 charge for tickets to the service – and there will also be a collection at the church.

All money raised – both from the tickets and the collection – will go to the Evening Star's Christmas Appeal to boost the Vicky Hall memorial pavilion fund.

nIf you want to go to the carol service, don't hang around, as tickets will be posted out on a first come, first served basis.

Please send cheques to Christine Upson, Evening Star, 30 Lower Brook Street, Ipswich, IP4 1AN. Please make cheques payable to ECNG Ltd.
