Nativity Crib Festival


Once again we invite everyone to let us borrow their personal sets so that we have a wide range of ages, styles and materials.

Last year we displayed over 200 sets and hope for lots more this time.

Alistair Glanvile will again be bringing his “moving” model village which fascinated us all last year.

In addition, there will be “The Angel Host” hovering in the Sanctuary and hopefully spilling out into the Chancel. Everyone will be encouraged to make an angel to join the throng.

There will be activities for the children throughout the Festival, including a dressing up area to become part of a nativity scene.

Festive refreshments of mince pies, stollen (not stolen) cake, tea and coffee will be available for purchase. Warming, spicy mulled wine will be available too.

The event is over the same weekend as Rotary’s Reindeer Parade, and on Sunday afternoon the Wells City Band will be playing in St. Cuthbert’s. Music is planned for other days too.

PLEASE set the dates aside in your diary and come and be intrigued by the many interpretations of the Christmas story from across the world.
