Journey of the Magi

J of the Magi poster

Journey of the Magi is a sparkling Christmas production of dance, theater, song and poetry, inspired by T S Eliot’s poem. A reminder not only of the famous journey the wise men made following the star to Jesus, but also of the journey each of us makes every year in preparing for Christmas day. A mix of laugh-out-loud funny, moving and entertaining scenes offer a chance to reflect and refocus. Enjoyed by children and adults alike.

Journey of the Magi will be performed at Southdown Methodist Centre on Monday 27 November at 7.30p.m. If you would like tickets please leave a message at the Southdown Methodist Centre (01225 460368 or send a message with your contact details to souterfam@aol.com.
