St Ippolyts Church Nativity Crib Festival December 1 & 2 11-5.
Now firmly established as a parish tradition our beautiful Nativity Festival marks the start of the festive season in St Ippolyts. We will be filling the church with as many nativity crib sets as we can possibly cram in – last year we managed nearly 200! Unbelievably we rarely have any duplicates, they vary in size from tiny to life size, made from virtually anything you could think of (even banana leaves!) and from all around the world. Each has its own “story” beside it and learning what makes the cribs special to their owners is the magic of the festival.
This year you could become part of a “Living Crib”. Use our dressing up clothes to create your own nativity scene with Mary and Joseph, Angels and Wise men, take a photo and you could create your own unique Christmas cards.
Delicious cakes will be available and you will have the chance to win your own crib. Entry is £2.50 and children are free.
£2.50, chidren are free
