CHURCHES Together in Earby and District will again this year be putting on its Earby to Bethlehem event.

The outdoor nativity play with real animals and baby Jesus will take place at 4pm on Sunday, December 17, at Earby Springfield Primary School.

This year Pendle MP Andrew Stephenson will be appearing as one of the three wise men, with dress rehearsals already under way.

He said: “Earby to Bethlehem is always an excellent event, which I enjoy attending, but this year I seem to have landed myself a part to play. I would encourage everyone to come along and support this Churches Together event.”
