Pennywell is closed and Christmas is coming!
Pennywell is now closed until 24th Nov when Father Christmas will arrive, Pennywell style to mark the beginning of our Christmas Nativity Plays.
Picture the scene.
Christmas lights and trees in an authentic manger setting with all the live animals looking on, warm and dry in their winter home.
Rekindle the true spirit of Christmas and put the arrival of the baby Jesus at the heart of Christmas. Pennywell Farm will be transformed into a real winter wonderland in time for the Nativity plays in December.
Pennywell supplies the costumes and organises the whole direction, giving every child (and adult) the opportunity to dress up and star in the performance. They even manage to make sure the snow falls at the end of each performance.
There really is a host of heavenly angels and many shepherds watching their sheep. Lots of voices are needed for the singing of Little Donkey, While Shepherds Watched and Away in a Manger to name a few.
After the play, every child meets Santa in his grotto and receives a present. A Christmas film is showing in the Farmyard Theatre between performances and seasonal refreshments of warm mince pies and mulled wine for the adults, home made Christmas biscuits and squash for the children make the visit complete.Christmas | Nativity
