The Christmas play, ‘Ye Serve the Lord’ is dedicated to children of the World and features a cast of local children and adults aged 7 upwards in speaking and dancing roles as well as a large crowd scene at the end.  The play was written by Helen Mortimer ( first principal of Elmhurst Ballet School in Surrey) in 1942 as as tribute to her son Michael who was killed in action that year.

The play has never lost its relevance, as the finale brings in refugees fleeing from the terror of war – children of all nations come to Mary and the child to find peace.

We are delighted to bring the Christmas Play to Lavenham, as the words are as relevant today as they were when they were first written.  It promises to be a moving experience for children and adults alike.
