Stowmarket: Griff Rhys Jones to turn on Christmas lights in St Peter and St Mary’s Church

BROADCASTER Griff Rhys Jones will turn on the Christmas lights in Stowmarket’s parish church as part of the town’s festive celebrations.

The former star of the TV programme Not the Nine O’Clock News, who lives near Holbrook, will be in town on Friday, November 30, to launch the Christmas Tree Festival.

Judy Eden, co-ordinator of the festival, said the town would be the “place to be” with live music being played in the town as the main lights switch-on will also take place in the evening. St Peter and St Mary’s Church will open its doors from 5.45pm with the lights being switched on at 6pm.

Last year more than 200 trees were packed into the church.
