Here's a selection of nativities and Christmas plays from the Newark and surrounding area
Children performing nativities and Christmas productions is an annual tradition dating back years.

They include schools and churches in the town and villages, and even entertaining patients at Newark Hospital.
Do you recognise anyone in the pictures?
