Adults are welcome to take part in the Nativity or simply watch the delight and wonder on the children’s faces from the cosy straw bale seating, as the greatest story ever told comes to life. Picture the scene . . a magical manger setting with all the Pennywell animals, the barn twinkling with hundreds of tint lights in the many Christmas trees and carols ringing out across the farm. Every child can become a star performer of they would like to. We have the costumes to provide a host of heavenly angels, shepherds watching their sheep, wise men travelling to worship, innkeepers and of course, Mary and Joseph.
