Mundesley Christmas Eve Pageant

Real horses, a donkey and a baby are all combining to bring to life Mundesley's festive pageant.

The pageant, which starts at 6.30pm and lasts around an hour, will move through the streets of Mundesley on Christmas Eve telling the Christmas story.

The watching crowd will follow the expectant parents Mary and Joseph, from their starting place at the bowls club car park, past the Free Church and along the high street until they reach a stable at the Methodist Church, with Christmas songs sung along the way.

Organiser and pageant director Jo Berry, said they were hopeful that the wise men in the pageant would be able to ride real horses, and that Mary would also be hitching a lift on 'Fred', a Scratby donkey, weather permitting. In one of the scenes, where the baby Jesus is presented at the temple, they are also hoping to have a real baby.

She said: 'Last year people really enjoyed it, we had at least 500 people turn up, this year, if the weather is good, I am hoping there may be even more.'

Fundraisers will collect donations throughout the evening in aid of Mundesley Youth and Community Project and to buy hampers for those in need.
