"The night raises good money for charity but is also a highlight of the Suffolk Christmas calendar and something to look forward to each year."
All money raised will go towards the Star's Raise the Roof Appeal.
The Appeal was launched in April to try and raise the final £100,000 needed to put the roof on the cancer and information centre at Ipswich Hospital.
The centre will have books and leaflets giving accessible information about the disease and its prevention.
Private rooms will also be provided for families to discuss the illness with consultants.
Currently the total stands around the £80,000 mark.
The Yuletide service will take place on Tuesday, December 16 at St Margaret's Church, Ipswich. It will begin at 7pm and generally lasts for about one hour.
Rev David Cutts will be leading the service, which will include short readings from Mark Murphy of Radio Suffolk, Disability Care Enterprise Project Director Carolyne Morey and the Mayor of Ipswich, Penny Breakwell.
