Hickling villagers perform First World War play for Christmas

Have your say

Villagers will perform a special commemoration to the First World War this weekend.

St Luke’s Church, Hickling, will host two performances of The Best Christmas Present In The World on Friday at 7pm, and Saturday at 5pm.

The play is based on Michael Morpurgo’s book about the football match on No Man’s Land during the Christmas Day truce of 1914.

Adults and children from the village tell the story with the help of music from the new Hickling Village Choir.

Tickets cost £5, or £1 for under 10s and over 70s, from Caroline on (01664) 820231 or Claire on (01664) 823682. Proceeds will go to Help For Heroes, Farms for City Children and St Luke’s.
