Organiser, Elizabeth Kemble told the Diss Express: “We had a great turn out at the weekend, with more than 100 people visiting the exhibition, even though the weather was rough.

“Three schools got involved with the festival and created angels. These were Botesdale, Diss Junior, and Scole schools.

“The photo booth proved popular with both children and adults. The carol service on Sunday told the Christmas Story and the part the angels played.”
