Falmouth Live Nativity

Take the train to Falmouth this Sunday (11th December 2016) for a nativity like no other – donkeys, sheep and alpacas included!

Now in its fifth year, the Live Nativity (which is free to attend) features carol singing, costumes, live animals and a procession through the town acting out the Christmas story.

The afternoon begins at Events Square (Discovery Quay), which is just five minutes’ walk from Falmouth Town station (see map).

Carols begin at 1.15pm and the nativity itself starts at 1.30pm. Read more in this preview by the Falmouth Packet.

You may also be interested in the Supersized Viking Weekend, happening just next door at the National Maritime Museum, 11-4 Saturday and Sunday.
