The last Passion Play in Trafalgar Square was in 2017
On Good Friday up to 20,000 people will gather to watch the Easter story in central London. Supported by the Mayor of London, one hundred Wintershall players bring their electric and moving portrayal of the final days of Jesus to this iconic location in the capital.
The 90-minute production is completely free of charge – a gift to Londoners and visitors. No tickets are required. There is a performance at 12 noon and 3:15 pm. The production is open air with visibility maximised using large screens. There is a realistic interpretation of the crucifixion so parental guidance is advised. British sign language interpretation is provided.
The huge Wintershall cast – including a donkey and horses – in colourful costumes, realistic scenes and a heart moving crucifixion and resurrection, The Passion of Jesus makes a great impact.
The Passion of Jesus has grown enormously over the years and is performed in London, Trafalgar Square every Good Friday. In 2013 it was live streamed onto the internet and went all round the world.
Now a regular, and highly praised addition to Easter in London, the Passion is free and attracts up to 20,000 people for each of its two performances at 12 noon and at 3.15 p.m. on Good Friday.
Big screens are used so wherever you are you can see and hear the acting.
