Live Nativity 2016

The sunny wintry weather provided the ideal backdrop for our first live Nativity, a collaboration between the Priory Church and Bolton Abbey Estate. An audience of 400 to 500 adults and children at two performances heard and saw the narrated story of the first Christmas, with angels and archangels, Magi, a Roman Centurion, market traders and citizens of Bethlehem, shepherds with their sheep and goats, King Herod, a stable with donkeys and llamas, Joseph, Mary, and of course the infant Jesus, played perfectly by baby Oliver!

We are extemely grateful to Stephen Garnett Photography of Skipton for a superb set of photos of the occasion, shown in the gallery below.
