The annual event started at 3pm on December 16 and was a celebration of yuletide cheer and festive musical arrangements.

As the lights were dimmed, candles lit the way into the church before carols such as Once in Royal David’s City and Silent Night were sung.

Mince Pies and mulled wine were served after as the choir and guests reminisced over Christmas from the past.

The church is often referred to as the queen of the marshlands and cathedral of the Fens and many experts believe that it is one of the finest churches in England.
