Acclaimed author Anthony Horowitz will be heading to Stowmarket on Friday evening to open the town's much loved Christmas tree festival.
Horowitz, who famously wrote the television series Foyle's War, will be switching on the lights at the Stowmarket Parish Church at 6pm on Friday, November 26.
The big switch on will involve 500 decorated Christmas trees across the town - they can be found at Stowmarket Parish Church (St Peter and St Mary's), Stowmarket Library, The Walnut pub, Abbots Hall at the Museum of East Anglian Life and in the grounds of the Red Gables.
Judy Eden, from Stowmarket Parish Church, said: "The trees are decorated by groups, organisations, businesses, schools and charities, as well as by families and individuals.
"It is a community event by the community for the community, we love to see people walk through our doors and be surprised by the sea of lights."
Visitors to Stowmarket town centre will be able to enjoy the festival between Friday, November 26, 2021 - January 1, 2022. Entry to the festival is free but donations are encouraged.
