Since 2010 the Wintershall Players have performed the Passion of Jesus on Good Friday in Trafalgar Square, This powerful and deeply moving recollection of Christ's journey to the Cross, and subsequent Resurrection, is viewed in person by around 20,000 people each year, with many more joining online.
There are performances at 12 noon and 3:15 pm. No tickets are required, the 90-minute performances are completely free of charge as a gift to Londoners and visitors. This event is very popular, so please arrive 40 minutes before your chosen performance.
For those who cannot make it to the Square the performances will be livestreamed on the Wintershall Facebook Page.
Supported by the Mayor of London, the production is open-air (please dress for variable British Weather) with visibility maximised using a large screen. There is a realistic interpretation of the crucifixion so parental guidance is advised. British sign language interpretation is provided.
Those who wish to access the Designated Accessibility Area will need to book here before 16th of February: space is very limited. The entrance to the Accessibility Area is on the west side of the North Terrace (near Canada House) in front of the National Gallery (WC2). Please bring a folding chair or wheelchair for the Accessibility area (no chairs are allowed in the rest of the Square and the audience sits on the ground or stands up).
All are welcome.
