Nativity Crib Festival

Our wonderful Nativity Crib Festival will be held again this year on December 3rd and 4th from 11-5.
Last year’s Festival was a real extravaganza! We had 240 Nativity crib sets on display with virtually no duplicates. From the very tiny - a wooden one the size of a quails egg to one made of papier mache a couple of feet high and everything in between. They ranged from traditional sets carved out of Holy Land olive wood to the frankly barmy – the one made from beer bottles springs to mind! Each was special and each had a little card explaining what made it special to it’s owner. (It is these cards that can make you laugh and cry that are, in many ways, the heart of the festival). In addition the Cribs were looked down on by a vast host of angels all suspended from purple lights in a truly beautiful display.
Will we match this again this year? We will try! We definitely have new cribs, one is made from bottle tops and a limpet shell! We will have our wonderful and popular “Living Crib” where you can dress up as the holy family and take a photo. There will be no host of angels but we are planning an equally amazing installation!
The Crib Festival is open both days from 11am to 5 pm
Entry is £4 and children are free
