Now in its 13th year, The Big Sing will take place on Sunday, August 6, from 6.30pm in St Mary's Church, Diss.

Open to the whole community, the popular event attracts around 250 people each year and over the years has raised more than £6,000 for various charitable organisations.

This year the event will be fundraising for fire and rescue services, who will be present on the night.

In recent weeks, event organiser Gerry Hosking has been collecting hymn nominations from the community.

The top 10 most popular hymns will be revealed and sung on the night, accompanied by the church organist, Salvation Army band and church choir.

Doors for the event open at 6pm, when the band starts playing, with hymn singing commencing at 6.30pm.
