Christmas Eve, Journey to the Crib, 4pm
Join Mary and Joseph on their journey through Cottingham and Middleton to the stable for the birth of Christ. Starting at the bottom (Ashley Road end) of Middleton Main Street, the Christmas Story will be told as you walk up through the villages, ending at St Mary Magdalene Church. All dressing up is welcomed, so if you have any eager little angels or shepherds, they can be included in the story. Wrap up warm and bring lanterns – it all adds to the festive atmosphere.
