Christmas: Advent and Nativity Performances
Christmas is similar to Easter in that there is a period of preparation known as Advent before the celebrations of Christmas. Just as in Lent, the period of preparation before Easter, Advent is a special time of reflecting on our need for Jesus to come to us and rescue us from sin and death.
Many people who are involved in various Passion Plays have also prepared special performances for Advent.
The traditional Christmas story, with all the well known characters, told by one man – Neil Maddock! Drama, music, song, and even a little bit of dance combine for a unique telling of the nativity story.
Drama Kirk have created “Jerusalem News”, a 12 minute, fun take on the nativity, from the perspective of a newsroom on that very first Christmas.
A living Advent Calendar has been created by the cast and crew of the Havant Passion Play and posted on Facebook.
This year you can experience the real Christmas story, as you walk through the beautiful grounds of the Wintershall Estate. Meet the Shepherds watching their sheep, spot the Angel as you climb the hill and help the Wise Men find the star!
