Diss celebrated the arrival of the festive season in style on Saturday as the town’s Christmas illuminations were switched on in front of hundreds of people.

The market packed was packed with families as Norwich Theatre Royal pantomime actor Ben Langley turned of the lights with the support of Father Christmas, who arrived in Diss on a fire engine sleigh, the Dinsdsale the Duck mascot and Diss mayor Julian Mason.

The lights were turned on at 6pm after a day of festive fun in the town based around the annual St Nicholas Christmas Fayre.
