The City of Ely Military Band braved the cold weather to bring Christmas cheer to dozens last weekend.

On Saturday they played on Ely Market Place as children joined in and danced to Jingle Bells.

On Sunday they travelled to Cambridge to the Arthur Rank Hospice for their annual Light up a Life service.

This is a service in the grounds, and halfway through, the Bishop of Ely turns on the lights in the trees in the garden to commemorate those who have passed away at the hospice.

The busy seasonal programme continues with four more appearances on Ely Market Place on December 8, 15 21 and 22, finishing with their Christmas concert at the college.

Details are as follows:
