Nativity Plays

Few people need to be told about nativity plays, so beloved of primary schools at Christmastide. All these pictures were taken at three schools in North London in the mid-eighties, when nativity plays were an essential part of the pre-Christmas festivities. Nowadays schools worry about offending non-Christian children and parents and the custom has been in decline. Collections thinks it is probably fair to surmise that neither the children nor the parents themselves are much bothered.
