Primary school cancels nativity play because it interferes with Muslim festival of Eid
by Chris Johnson
A primary school infuriated parents after cancelling the traditional Christmas nativity play to make way for the Muslim festival of Eid.
Parents at the Nottingham school were told that the planned performance had to be pulled because some of the pupils wanted to celebrate Eid at home with their families.
In a letter, sent by the staff at Greenwood Junior School, mothers and fathers were told: 'It is with much regret that we have had to cancel this year's Christmas performances.
'This is due to the Eid celebrations that take place next week and its effect on our performers.'
