New! Actors Wanted!

Are you a budding Herod or a wannabe Mary?

This Christmas we’re inviting families to join us on a trail, meeting various characters from the nativity on their way.

We need a whole host of adults to become heavenly hosts, shepherds, magi, towns folk, stable animals, unstable animals and the holy family!

The event is on December 16th, and will last a couple of hours (timings TBC).

If you are interested in helping, as an actor or another capacity, please contact [email protected] – there will be mulled wine.
