Following the huge success of the model angels displayed around Guildford Cathedral last Christmas, visitors this year will be treated to a display of nativity characters designed by local schools across the region.
The nativity characters will be on display from 4 December until 6 January, with a special family nativity fun day with Christmas themed crafts planned for 9 December.
Well over 100 figures are expected to arrive, with 44 primary and secondary schools taking part, helping to bring the Christmas Story to life for visitors to the Cathedral.
Jane Whittington from Diocese of Guildford’s Education team said,
“We’re thrilled that schools are taking part with as much enthusiasm as they did last year. The nativity figures we’ve seen so far have been amazingly detailed and will help tell the Christmas Story beautifully, really transporting Cathedral visitors to that lowly cattle-shed."
The characters are made of paper, card and willow, amongst other materials. Don’t miss out on spotting the holy family, donkey, shepherds, sheep, kings, camels and lots of angels over the festive season.
