Residents and visitors left behind the Christmas shopping for an hour to enjoy their favourite carols performed by Littleport Brass Band and Ely Choral Society.

The events took place at Ely Cathedral and St Mary's Church.

Sing-a-long carols including Hark! The Herald Angels Sing and Away in a Manger brought festive cheer before readings and prayers took place.

The Ely Choral Society Christmas Concert at St Mary's Church was under Andrew Parnell's direction.
