St Ippolyts Church Nativity Crib Festival

St Ippolyts Church, Ashbrook Ln, St Ippolyts, Hitchin SG4 7PB
11am- 5pm

The Nativity Crib Festival is a truly magical start to Christmas. We fill our beautiful, medieval, church with Nativity Crib sets and then sprinkle some fairy dust to create a stunning display.

The variety of the cribs need to be seen to be believed, 260 cribs last year and hardly a duplicate! They are made from an unbelievable array of materials – nescafe pods or banana leaves to name a couple and they come from all around the world from as far away as New Zealand and Alaska. However, what makes them so special are their “stories” about what makes them so important to the families that own them.

There will be a mini café serving hot drinks and fabulous, homemade cakes. You can dress up as a “living crib” and take a photo for your Christmas cards!

Entry is £4, children are free.
