Our church was open for viewing the nativity story, told through a series of scenes and artistic, floral displays. There was also a collection of nativity sets on view and a children's corner with dressing up clothes and activities.
In our hall, The Portchester Historical Society displayed photos of Portchester from past winters and the Portchester Art Group held an exhibition of paintings with a Christmas theme.
Tea, coffee and mince pies were available throughout the festival.
The Festival culminated with a Nativity Carol Service taken by our minister and attended by the Deputy Mayor.
