Local churches group Waypoint has organised a Live Nativity event that will be taking place in the town centre on Saturday 16 December from 1pm to 4pm. The event is the first of its kind for the town and will feature actors and live animals provided by a professional group including a donkey, sheep and even a camel at Sessions Square. We hope that the event will bring some festive magic to the town at this key time of year for trade and invite you to share the news with your customers and even dress in first century costume on the day to really get into the spirit of this very special event.
The event consists of five scenes across the town as follows:
Scene 1: Nazareth – Remembrance Square at 1pm
Scene 2: Bethlehem – Jubilee Square at 1.30pm including a donkey
Scene 3: Hills of Bethlehem – Brenchley Gardens at 2.15pm including sheep
Scene 4 Herod’s Palace – Sessions Square at 3pm including a camel
Scene 5 Bethlehem – Jubilee Square at 3.45pm
