Though the weather outside may be icy it seems nothing will deter Swaffham from putting on a fun-packed Christmas festival full of eastern promise early next month.

The centre of Swaffham is set to come alive on the weekend of December 6 and 7 as the streets are filled with festive cheer and excitement for all ages.

Along with the more traditional Christmas fun a team of belly dancers are set to brave the chilly winter air for an outside performance on Saturday.

On the same day a barber shop quartet will perform around the town and Fakenham Town Band will lead the entertainment at the Buttercross.
