Guidelines on entering the festival

Making your scene:
We’d love everyone to make their own version of the traditional nativity scene. If you’re not sure of the story there are some pointers below.
Do use your imagination and make it individual, if you’re part of a group could you include a link to that somehow? For example, if you’re in the Brownies, figures could be in uniform, or if you’re in a gardening club, you could use greenery and cut flowers in your scene.

What to use:
Anything, except valuables! Junk model, craft, baked, greenery, whatever you like!

Size:
Ideally the scenes need to fit onto a window sill in the church which are around 14” deep so not too big please. If you have a burning desire to make a bigger scene please let us know first so we can make sure we can accommodate it within the space.

When?:
Please bring your finished scenes to the church on Saturday 7th December when we’ll be launching the festival between 10.30am – 4pm. Drop off your scene but you can also enjoy refreshments, cake and there will be crafts and games for the kids too.

The scenes need to stay in the church until 5th January when we will be closing the festival with a celebration of the arrival of the 3 Wise Men. Watch this space for further details of what time we’ll be doing this!
