Christmas show rides into South Norfolk church

RidingLIghtsXmas450Riding Lights Theatre Company has a Christmas treat in store for Carleton Rode in South Norfolk with Only 80 Miles to Christmas! a warm-hearted and hilarious retelling of the traditional nativity story, suitable for the whole family.

Full of wonderful story-telling, chaos and puppets, Only 80 Miles to Christmas is the perfect Riding Lights Christmas experience for young and old alike and can be seen at Carleton Rode Baptist Church on Tuesday December 3.
You'd think it would be simple carpenter on his own, pops down to Bethlehem to register for the census…. an easy enough trip… no problem. But Mary wants to come too. Suddenly the journey takes on a new life, full of travel cots and squeaky toys, terrifying traffic wardens and Persian philosophers, not to mention a wildly mischievous camel called Desmond.
Suitable for the whole family, the show is full of laughter, excitement and unexpected twists. The performance lasts approximately one hour. For ages 5 and over.
Riding Lights is an innovative professional theatre company and a registered charity and the show, full of fun and high spirits, was performed to the great delight of many audiences on a short tour last Christmas.
See Only 80 Miles to Christmas on Tuesday December 3, 7pm, Carleton Road Baptist Church, Chapel Road, Carleton Rode, Norfolk NR 16 1RN. Box Office: 01953 788598 Tickets £5
