Nailstone Nativity Panto Bingo or Nanto

The first Nativity was performed by so-called grown up villagers in the Bulls Head on Thursday 20th December to an adoring audience. It was a Nativity ‘Panto’, hereafter known as the Nanto.

Following yonder star to a stable in Nailstone!

Narrator Tim Shaw wrote the script, setting the Christmas Story in a future Nailstone, imagining that King Charles and Queen Camilla are on the throne, at a time when the government are repatriating people back to their homelands after Brexit. In true ‘Panto’ style the audience were required to interact and participate- including listening out for numbers in the script to mark off their bingo cards. There were 6 winners! Thank you Claire for the prizes

In fact there were calls to do another one next year…..

Here are a few more photos:
