A TRADITIONAL Christmas nativity is being held in Thornton Hough.
A cast of 24 people, young and old, will tell the story from when the Angel Gabriel appears to Zacharias through to Jesus being born.
The play is taking place on Sunday, December 9, at All Saints' Church at 6.30pm, and is expected to last 30 minutes.
Caroline Lancelyn Green wrote the script and directed the performance, as well as creating the costumes.
She said: “This is the first time we have done a nativity at the church and it has been taken from the original version from the King James Bible.
“The youngest cast member is eight and the oldest is 80 so there is a wide range of participants. We began rehearsing a month ago and it is a short play.
“The nativity aims to put everything in to perspective and help us understand the meaning of Mary’s Song.
“The most unusual aspect is that it explains a lot of things – how the star stopped, and why the wise men were known as Kings and came from the east.
“I have tried to stick to the words in the Bible and wanted to make the costumes as authentic as a possible.
“Everyone is welcome to attend and we hope they will enjoy it.”
