INTERVIEW | Nativity the Musical | Simon Lipkin and Daniel Boys

Christmas arrives in Birmingham early this year with the smash-hit festive film Nativity being brought to the stage as a brand new musical. The feel-good family musical centres around St Bernadette’s School who are attempting to create a musical version of the traditional nativity play.

Barbados

If you follow me on twitter or instagram you’ll know that this year I spent Christmas and New Year in Barbados.
