It was a night to remember at the Wycombe Swan on Saturday as hundreds of theatregoers and residents attended a charity production.

The roof was taken off the St Mary Street venue as a community show of ‘Nativity! The Musical’ took place on October 28.

It was organised by the Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity to ‘raise awareness’ of the work that the cause does in and around the county, and beyond.

Rehearsals with the 100 children and adult theatre professionals (who are giving up their time for free), shined in the show, with all the money raised going to the hospice.

Mayor of High Wycombe, Paul Turner said: “I thoroughly enjoyed attending rehearsals earlier in the week, I was blown away by the commitment of the cast, the production team and the amazing volunteers.

“Some of the cast and adults involved have a personal connection to the Hospice, they just want to give something back, and you can see that in their dedication to the show.

“Being part of this production will stay with these children forever, it is a wonderful life experience for them, what can’t be good about it?”

When the guests arrived, ticket holders were welcomed by charity staff and volunteers, who sold a range of Christmas cards, sweet cones and glow sticks, whilst offering temporary glitter tattoos for the younger members of the audience.
