Thousands of Christmas shoppers were treated to another magical Live Nativity this afternoon.
Flash mobs at St. Stephen’s and Princes Quay shopping centre’s surprised shoppers with impromptu performances that gave a new modern twist to the nativity story while other performers from NAPA took the parts of Mary, Joseph, shepherds and the three king’s.
With 2 donkey’s involved as well the performers made their way through Hull Town Centre, along Whitefriargate all the way to Holy Trinity Church for another celebratory piece of music and dancing.
Inside the church from 10 o clock in the morning was Trinity Open Market with several stalls doing a strong trade in gifts such as pictures, books and many other items all set in the magnificent surroundings of the church along with its Christmas Tree and decorations and nativity scene.
After the massive success of the recent Victorian Christmas Market trader Julie Buffey was once again involved with this market event and said that trade was going well again.
Outside the church in the afternoon there was Christmas Carol singing from the NAPA Choir before the live nativity arrived.
After the live nativity performance outside the church there was a candlelit service inside with all the lights off and many Christingle’s burning brightly with the live nativity, including the donkey’s, having made their way to the front of the church.
All in all the event again seemed to be very well run and was obviously another big hit with hundreds of people gathering outside the church for the arrival and performance of the live nativity, and many also taking places in the church for the candlelit service.
