What an amazing initiative this is!! Time is running out.....we need you to get involved....
CARDIFF CHRISTMAS – THE STORY The three Wise Men will be riding their camels in to the heart of the city’s shopping centre this Christmas, as Cardiff gets set to pioneer a dramatic event, the first of its kind in the UK. Called Christmas – The Story, it’s a nativity play – and more - which will be performed every day, throughout the day, from December 1-18.Forget tea towels and cute angels, this production will be a visual feast performed by adults and which aims to become as essential to every family’s Christmas as a trip to Santa’s grotto. In future years Christmas – The Story will become a tradition, an annual event in towns and cities across the UK. The project was inspired by a shocking survey which showed that there was a woeful lack of knowledge of the nativity story among young people in the 18-24 age group, with 36 per cent of those interviewed not knowing Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Now the mainstream churches of Cardiff, backed by the charity the Bible Society, have got together to fund and produce a 20-minute nativity play to bring back the Christmas story for new and future generations. English and Welsh-language versions of the play will be performed inside Tabernacle Church on the Hayes, with market stalls and street entertainers adding to the fun outside.
