Almost 600 people came along to St Andrew’s Church in Great Finborough, near Stowmarket, to the Festival of Angels event.

On Friday, people had the chance to have a sneak peek inside the church and listen to light opera with the theme of angels.

The Rev Liz Law, who chaired the organising committee, said: “It was a great success, we had a huge amount of people, we sold out of all the arts and crafts. It was a great community event.”

Choirs from Combs Middle School, Finborough School and Great Finborough Primary School all performed.
