Residents of Ilkeston will be able to attend a Christmas Carol Service that will take place at Ilkeston Market Place on Christmas Eve.
The service will start at 7pm outside the town hall, and music will be provided by the Salvation Army Band.
Marking the countdown to Christmas, the event will also feature a short service at St Mary’s Church, and a visit from Santa.
The Mayor of Erewash, Councillor Kewal Singh Athwal, said: “This carol service is a heart warming and traditional way for people of all ages to start the countdown to the big day.”
A collection will be held and any donations made will go to the mayor’s chosen charities of The Royal British Legion and Cadet Units.
Councillor Athwal added: “It is always such a wonderful and welcome atmosphere, and I look forward to seeing everyone there.”
