Na­tiv­ity is back

Warwickshire Telegraph - - NEWS - By LAURA HART­LEY

THE kids from St Ber­nadette’s Pri­mary School in Coven­try are back as the staff and stu­dents au­di­tion for a cov­eted place in a spec­tac­u­lar mu­si­cal com­pe­ti­tion in the lat­est Na­tiv­ity film.

With the unique feel good charm of the orig­i­nal film, Celia Im­rie reprised her rose as head­mistress Mrs Keen, star­ring along­side Meera Syall, Ruth Jones, Anna Chan­cel­lor, Hugh Den­nis and He­len Ge­orge.

The film also in­tro­duces Si­mon Lip­kin as Jerry Poppy and Craig Revel Hor­wood as the strictly ruth­less show di­rec­tor Em­manuel Cavendish.

Na­tiv­ity Rocks is the fourth film in the series, and will be out nearly ten years af­ter the first one.

Na­tiv­ity first came out in 2009, and starred some big names in­clud­ing Martin Free­man and Ash­ley Jensen.

It is only fit­ting that Coven­try will be get­ting to host the UK premiere for the film.

Si­mon Lip­kin, Craig Revel Hor­wood, pro­ducer Nick Jones and film di­rec­tor Deb­bie Is­sit will all be at­tend­ing the premiere at the Odeon Sky­dome.

The premiere will take place on Mon­day, Novem­ber 19, at around 5.30pm.

A Christ­mas mar­ket com­plete with gi­ant Christ­mas tree was set up out­side Coven­try Cathe­dral dur­ing the shoot in March. Film crews were also spot­ted at Warwick Av­enue, Earls­don.

Other lo­ca­tions around Coven­try have re­mained a se­cret but all will be re­vealed once the film is re­leased.
