A stable full of Christmas characters will be visiting Guildford Cathedral.

44 local primary and secondary schools are bringing Christmas to life by making nativity figures that are on display  until January 7.

Visitors will be treated to the sight of over 100 shepherds, donkeys, kings, camels and of course, a band of angels.

The characters are created mainly out of paper, card and willow,

There's also a special family nativity fun day with Christmas themed crafts planned for December 9.

Jane Whittington from Diocese of Guildford’s Education team said:

 “We’re thrilled that schools are taking part with as much enthusiasm as they did last year.

"The nativity figures we’ve seen so far have been amazingly detailed and will help tell the Christmas Story beautifully, really transporting Cathedral visitors to that lowly cattle-shed.”
