Passing Christmas Shoppers were treated to a Nativity Play with a difference on the 15th December. After overcoming some initial technical problems with the sound, in the first performance the event was considered to be a great success. Actors, many of whom played in the Passion for Bolton 2011 event, repeated the Nativity performance from the 10th December at the Reebok.
Market Place shoppers stopped and watched the Nativity with interest and joined in the carols which culminated in a Tableau combining both the Modern and the traditional.
The Revd Canon Matt Thompson expertly and tunefully led many of the Carols which the public joined in with great enthusiasm.
