School children from around Bury St Edmunds have taken part in a free community Christmas production.

Following auditions in acting, singing and stage work, and a full day of rehearsals, Christmas drama Excite was held at The Christian Resource Centre on Sunday.

Around 200 people watched the show, which included roles for children from Little Acorns Childcare.

“All the participants worked really hard and put on a fantastic show,” said senior pastor Sujith Alex.

Free festive refreshments including mulled wine and mince pies were enjoyed after the show.

There will be a free community Christmas carol service inside the centre in Oakes Road, on the Howard Estate, from 7-8pm on Friday, also with free refreshments, and a Christmas service on Sunday.
