NATIVITY scenes from around the world are on display in Kenilworth.

Abbey Hill Church in Kenilworth opened an exhibition of over 100 nativity sets from different countries for all to see.

The displays feature many differences to traditional British displays – with llamas in the stable from South America, hippos replacing the sheep in the Zambian display, and a tepee stands in place of the stable in the North American scene.

They can be seen tomorrow (Friday) from 2pm to 4pm, and on Saturday (December 13) from 10am to 4pm.

Visitors can also enjoy specially baked nativity biscuits with tea and coffee on sale.
