As the first great Nativity proposal reads: “Why don’t we do a school nativity in Bedlam” “Yes, why don’t we?” “No wait”

Since then for the past three years, even while the world was doing a thing, Nativity has remained a mainstay in Bedlam. Far-removed from the religious indoctrination of a British primary school, but not that far, we have written funny [citation needed] scripts to emulate a Year 2 school nativity to raise money for charity. This year we’re aiming our sights ever higher…and will be putting on a Year 3 school nativity.

As always, in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
