A Suffolk pub is guaranteeing a white Christmas this year ahead of a town's festive lights switch-on.

North Street Tavern in Sudbury is bringing in snow machines in time for the town's Christmas light switch on, on November 26.

New landlady Lauren Talbot, who is holding a special event to mark the occasion, said: "This year it's really important for Christmas to be celebrated."

"We have hired in a couple of snow machines, which will sit on our top window and it will be snowing. It's something one of our friends did in Rayleigh and it was a huge success.

"To hire them we paid a fair amount, but we've been sponsored by a local business, who in turn we'll advertise for outside the pub."

In addition to the mechanically generated snow for children to play in, there will be a variety of games and prizes, while a children's disco will be held from 5pm.

After this, at 8:30pm, North Street's house DJ Harry will be returning to kick of Christmas.
