This year’s programme is once again under the direction of Tessa Howell. The theme is ‘The Stable at Bethlehem’ which will be presented by children with their customary enthusiasm, along with music (supported by a small choir), readings, poems and cards. Everyone is welcome.
With the blessing of the crib, a wealth of favourite carols for audience participation supported by a choir, nativity narration and acting, a programme of readings, poems and music with two choirs, trumpets, bells, and of course a glass of something to keep you warm.
Produced by our amazingly spritely resident director Tessa Howell, with musical direction provided by the very patience and talented David Kyle.
