The Nativity of Jesus became a full-blown party during an east Suffolk school’s retelling of the traditional Christmas tale last week.

Aldeburgh Primary School’s two performances of Jesus’s Christmas Party cast a new perspective on Christ’s birth, with two grumpy innkeepers kept awake all night by the young Messiah’s many visitors.

Headteacher Debbie Gayler said both shows at the Jubilee Hall were a great success. “The parents loved every minute of it and we were really proud of the children,” she said.

“They’re still practising being soldiers at playtime and singing all the songs, they really enjoyed it.”

The play was the school’s first to involve only pupils from the younger years, ages four to seven, with the older classes performing their own Christmas carol concert.
