Instructions for Nativity Attendees

Posted on 30 Nov 2018

Please see below instructions for Nativity 2018 attendees, we look forward to welcoming you to Wintershall and we hope that you really enjoy the performance.

The Nativity play takes place outside and inside Holly Barn, therefore please dress appropriately for winter or wet weather with stout shoes or boots. Hot drinks and snacks and a small shop, selling seasonal merchandise, are available from 40 minutes before each performance. Merchandise can also be purchased in advance or after the play by calling 01483 892167 – this includes books, DVD’s, Nativity Music, Nativity colouring books, Christmas Cards, recipe books, handmade candles, gloves and hats and produce from Wintershall.

There is free parking, Holly Barn is a few minutes steep walk from the car park. If you will need assistance, please contact us in advance on 01793 418 299 and we can book parking for you next to the Barn Theatre. This MUST be pre-booked in advance. If you are attending the 2nd performance on any of the days, please arrive a half an hour before, this allows time for the traffic from the 1st performance to depart. Please note that pushchairs are not allowed inside the Barn and it is advisable to use a baby carrier rather than a pushchair due to the steep walk to the Barn and the potentially muddy conditions outside.

After the start of the play outside, you move inside and are seated in the theatre on plain wooden benches. Foam cushions are available to hire before the performance from our shop, if you wish, or you can bring your own. Each performance lasts approximately 90 minutes. Please note that mobile phones must be switched off during the performance and we do not allow  photography or filming of the Play in consideration of the animals.

Please note that smoke and pyrotechnics are used during the performance of the Play. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
