Bethlehem f’Għajnsielem to open on Sunday

Over 150 actors animating the live crib

The 9th edition of the Bethlehem f’Għajnsielem live crib will open on Sunday, and this year is once again expected to attract thousands of visitors before it closes on January 7.

The 20,000 square metre site – until October of 2008, just an abandoned piece of land – is animated by over 150 actors.

Bethlehem f'Ghajnsielem will also include re-enactments of the ‘trip’ from Nazareth to Bethlehem of Joseph and Mary as well as the Adoration of the Magi on the Epiphany (first Sunday after New Year's day) when the three Wise Men will depart on horseback from Malta to Ċirkewwa terminal where they will board a ferry in mid-afternoon before making the triumphal entrance to the nativity village.
