Bedale Churches Together decided to take the Christmas Story out onto the Streets of Bedale on December 21st. People were encouraged to Follow the Star and see the story unfold and meet the characters along the way. A good crowd gathered at the Methodist Church and followed the star around the town. Mary and Joseph were turned away from the Inn (the Black Swan Pub on the market place) We went via the Park to see the Angels visiting the shepherds, and the Millings Retirement home where Herod was asked where the newborn King was. All the characters came together at Chantry hall for the final scene. Carols were sung at each point, accompanied on the accordion. Seasonal Refreshments were served and the prizes given out for finding all the star and constellation names displayed in the shops.
