St Edmundsbury Cathedral is inviting individuals and local businesses to take part in a special Lego Nativity competition this Christmas.

Participants are being asked to create their own version of the Nativity scene and bring it into the cathedral.

Entries will open on November 28 and close at 5pm on December 18.

It is free to enter for the under fives, but will cost £5 for children under 12, £10 for youngsters over 12 and £20 for businesses.

The entry fee proceeds will go towards the cathedral’s youth outreach project which is the focus of fund-raising from the Lego project to build a model of the cathedral out of 200,000 Lego bricks.

There is also an online version of the competition for those who are unable to get to the cathedral. Post a photo of your Nativity scene on the @Stedscathlego Facebook page, or on Twitter @Stedscathlego or Instagram @stedscath using the hashtage #stedscathlego.

Tony Kimber, of the cathedral, said: “We’re encouraging everyone to have a go and roll back their sleeves, from traditional right through to modern day interpretations, we think this will really capture everyone’s imaginations.”
