There's still time to star in this year's Ripon Christmas video, and it's the 12 Days of Christmas that residents will be singing along to this time - but with a special Ripon twist...

Ripon's first Christmas video, a cover of Wizzard's I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day, went viral last year - clocking up an impressive 27,000 views.

And the project's organiser, Lily Worth, is determined to make this year's song and accompanying music video even bigger and better - with plenty of Ripon community groups, businesses and residents taking part.

The lyrics to the 12 Days of Christmas have even been rewritten around Ripon - featuring references to Ripon’s famous cat Badger, the city's four hornblowers, Ripon Cathedral's bells, and Ripon's three rivers, to name just a few things.

The videographer this year is Chris Chapman who runs the city's Nobody Films production company. Their work includes filming the Ripon's Got Talent final and more recently, a spoof film trailer about Ripon's sinkholes.

The team behind this year's Christmas video will be raising money for Orb Community Arts while they are out filming.
