The Nativity Quest Family Celebration

People can “drop-in” to this free event or come for the whole time from 2 pm to 3:30 pm. There will be lots of fun activities. Children are encouraged to come dressed as one of the nativity characters and to bring a set of nativity figures, if they have one, to put on temporary display with others including the white and gold set from Mexico that is involved in the Nativity Quest around Hebden Bridge shops.

Gold Frankincense and Myrrh

There will be a variety of activities at this free all-age workshop to celebrate Epiphany or the Day of the Kings except, if you read the Biblical story, there were unlikely to have been any “kings” visiting the “stable”.
