FILM Nativity

The BIG Screen Cinema Experience

Sunday 20 December 2020

Congress Theatre

A hilarious improvised comedy based around a school nativity play. It’s everything you’d imagine and more – with a romantic sub story for good measure. Laugh-out-loud moments come from the children throughout the film as their primary school teacher, a failed actor, is this year given his chance to direct the notoriously disastrous school nativity play – will he succeed in making this year any different? Rumours that a Hollywood director is coming to see the show mean it’s all systems go to make this nativity the envy of every school!

Martin Freeman as the primary teacher leads the improvisation with Pam Ferris, Ashley Jensen and Alan Carr among other big names adding to the comedy furore!
