Humour, pathos and sincerity - Holywell's nativity play
St Mary’s Church Holywell was full to bursting point on Thursday evening 15th December as pupils from Holywell Village First School staged a traditional Nativity play and carols.
The 24 youngsters of year four delighted a 140-strong audience of family, friends and members of St Mary’s with a traditional rendition of the Christmas story, full of humour, pathos and sincerity. As well as Christmas carols being sung by the whole gathering, the pupils also enchanted those watching by singing on their own.
Head teacher Mrs Sarah Brett opened the evening by welcoming everyone to St Mary’s and after the play Fr Phil Hughes thanked everyone involved, from the School teachers, The Mothers Union and the Men’s group and especially the young actors for working so hard to ensure the Nativity was the success it deserved to be.
Pupils presented a felt picture they had made of the Nativity to the Church as both a thank you and as a reminder of a wonderful evening.
