A pageant telling one of the oldest stories in the world is making a return this Christmas.

Mundesley Pageant, which leads a procession around the seaside village re-enacting the Christmas story, took a break last year but will be back again on Christmas Eve.

Mundesley's parish councillors will take on the roles of the wise men, and it is also hoped there will be real donkeys, sheep and llamas.

The pageant will start at 6.15pm from the Bowls Club car park, opposite Mundesley Free Church, and last for an hour.

A procession will then follow a star, through Mundesley, down Back Street, along Station Road to the Post Office and past Gold Park to the Spar shop and the Manor Hotel and then to the Methodist Church where they will be directed to the car park at All Saints' Parish Church, where Mary will give birth to baby Jesus.

The family will be visited by shepherds and wise men before going into All Saints for the final part of the Christmas story.

Anyone wishing to help is also welcome, especially anyone willing to play the part of a Roman soldier.
