Parents and grandparents looked on with proud tears in their eyes as their youngsters took their turn in the spotlight, when a special Christmas performance saw them take to the stage with their own version of the Nativity.

Music and Movement classes bring hundreds of budding theatrical stars together to explore the arts while enjoying imaginative play with the other children.

Director Helen Battelley started the classes in 2000 and has been reaching over 1,500 pupils across West and North Norfolk every week since they began.

Every year, she bravely stages a musical Nativity performance that involves children from as young as 18-months-old to four-years-old.

She said: “The performance combines all of the pupils from my parent, toddler and baby classes across the area, we have been working on our musical Nativity for a while now and all of the children had a special part.

“The first half was the traditional nativity, there was a lot of love and hugs between Mary and Joseph and they were very excited when the baby Jesus was born.

“We had lots of our little ones in lamb romper suits, all of our crawlers made their way onto the stage and the really little ones came on with their mums. There were 25 little angels who came on stage on their tippy toes and danced around in their silver halos before the rest of the children sang Jingle Bells.”

She added: “My favourite part was the second half when the children came on stage in their pyjamas and pretended to fall asleep while Father and Mrs Christmas sang songs and delivered all the presents.”

Mrs Battelley runs Music and Movement classes across the area from Downham to Hunstanton to Hemsby. Go to www.musicandmovement.org.uk or call 01362 694620 to find out about classes near you.
