Formby's Nativity Musical
Photographs by Patrick Trollope.
FORMBY residents and visitors to the
Village were treated to a free festive delight, on Sunday, 10 December 2017, as
the Churches Together in Formby, Altcar and Hightown (CTIFAH)
group took to the stage to deliver a musical version of the Nativity. This year
it was held within the grounds of the Formby Pool Gardens, despite the bitter
cold and the splattering of snowflakes.
The cast included some well known local faces,
along with choirs from Make Noise, Our Lady's, Woodlands, Freshfield and St
Jerome's Schools, along with a real donkey... Plus, some of the audience spotted
in the background, the brief, unofficial and unscripted appearance of a
life-sized model elephant. The audience included the Mayor of Sefton and local
MP Bill Esterson.

This was a fantastic way to get into the
festive mood, and again, true to their
words:- "come rain or snow"
the show did go on...
