The visit to the Bethlehem closes between shepherds, who offer a memory of Fals, giving heat to the show and wanting to return.
The Cultural and Recreational Association of Fals is aware of the importance of this fact and that is why it is used to introduce improvements year after year. The ACR bets every year to improve the manger in all its paintings, to offer more quality in the representations and to make it more attractive to the viewer.
The representations of the manger last approximately 50 minutes.
The Bethlehem that began humbly in 1977 and has grown and improved with the efforts of its members, until it became a benchmark for Christmas shows in Bages. It should be noted that in 1992, the Living Nativity of Bages was awarded by the Department of Culture of the Generalitat of Catalonia with one of the national prizes for popular culture, with the Prize for the Best Popular Artistic Initiative. The manger has also been worthy of other sufficiently important awards such as: Prize 7 of Region 7 Scene (1991); Ateneos Award (1992) and the most recent: Young Chamber of Manresa Award (2001).
