This year's Christmas lights displays were switched on in many locations, and there were also some festive markets.

Sudbury, Felixstowe and Southwold all turned on their lights, with special guests and competition winners given the privilege of flicking the switch.

In Sudbury, the lights were officially switched on by the Town Mayor of Sudbury, Councillor Robert Spivey, and the winner of this year's Christmas Card Competition, Emily Oddie, a pupil at St Gregory's Primary School.

A new lights attraction, the Sudbury Memory Tree, which will bear memory messages dedicated to lost loved ones in aid of St Nicholas Hospice, was also turned on in Old Market Place.
