The play was created when Pat Eastop and the Revd Stanley Young got together to put on a nativity Play in the village of Aldermaston in Berkshire. Pat was a local mother and arts teacher.
Pat discovered a Nativity play created by the theatre producer and director E. Martin-Browne. It was the Nativity stories from the 14th Century York Mystery Cycle that he had especially designed for performance in the tranquil setting of a church in the early 1950’s.
Over the years there have been many many people that have performed or worked back stage on the Nativity Play.
