Parents and schools have been hard at work preparing for this year’s round of nativity plays.

From cotton-wool-clad lambs to tinsel-bearing angels, school children from across Hackney have been preparing to debut their festive performance to friends and family.

See if you can spot a familiar face (beneath the face paint and tea towels) in our adorable gallery of budding actors.

You’ll be sure to see various Marys and Josephs donning striped gowns, as well as kings, stars and the odd narrator or two.

Congratulations to all the productions, whose shows have come together thanks to hard work, preparation...and plenty of safety pins.
