About Humph The Camel


Usually Humph the Camel doesn’t show the slightest bit of interest in anything. But to everyone's surprise and delight, when he meets the newborn King he just can't contain his excitement and joy!

Another triumph from Niki Davies, this charming nativity play for kids features seven brand new songs. This familiar story is told in a fresh and fun way, which works perfectly with children in the early years.

Annual Performance Licence Information


A current Annual Performance Licence is required to perform this nativity to an audience (other than to pupils & staff).

In addition, with so many of our musicals and nativities purchased in digital format, you need a legal way to install or distribute copies for use around the school. Your Annual Performance Licence will grant you permission to:

  1. Perform the work to an audience (other than pupils and staff in schools). A licence is required even if it is a 'free' performance and this is a worldwide copyright requirement.

  3. Download Words on Screen™ song files from a CD ROM onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  4. Continue to stream Words on Screen™ songs from your Out of the Ark Music online account on any device (beyond your free period) for the duration of the licence.

  7. Upload digital content to an intranet or learning platform.
  8. Permit usage of digital content at home for teachers for preparation purposes.

A separate Annual Performance Licence is required for each product title that you use in any of these ways. Please note that if you have purchased an Annual Digital Site Licence – Multi-Product, this will cover the digital usage permissions in points 2-8 above for these products but does not cover the performance rights in point 1 – an Annual Performance Licence will still be required.

Really enjoyed!

By Amy

My daughter performed this play with her toddler group . All the children remembered the words to the songs and the parents enjoyed watching it just as much as the children enjoyed performing it. Definitely recommend!


good

By tb

This worked really well with years 1 and 2 with everyone enjoying the humour of the grumpy camel. the songs were catchy and very easy to learn


short but effective

By dp

This is a lovely nativity with some lively and enjoyable songs. The only downside is that it is very short We used it in school, but rewrote it to make it more interesting and give it a little more depth - easily done as the framework is there. It worked really well and everyone was impressed. We did not feel that it was good enough as purchased.


Brilliantly funny nativity

By Blondecurl

My son's school performed this play perfectly. The camels were so funny and the whole play was performed very well, even thought they were only 4-7 years old. Well worth buying for your school.


Fantastic!

By debbie@portland

My 4 year old son did this for his nativity last year. He loved it, and has been singing it on and off ever since. So we need to get him a copy!


Lovely nativity

By Bex

I used this play last year with reception, year 1 and year 2. The children absolutely loved the funny story and the songs were so easy to learn. I will definately be using this again.
