The Passion of Jesus

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 no longer performed only at Wintershall and goes out to the people, in London, Trafalgar Square every Good Friday and in Guildford on Easter Saturday, and Staines on Easter Saturday. 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.

Please note that this is an open air event so clothing appropriate for the forecasted weather conditions should be worn. This performance contains a realistic interpretation of the crucifixion - parental guidance is advised.

Big screens are used so wherever you are you can see and hear the acting.

BSL interpreters will be available for both London performances.

“The Passion brought tears to my eyes .... it was a truly wonderful production”

 “I brought my brother who is usually quite critical of religious things but he said it was very impressive”

“It must have made people really think about Jesus and hope it taught those who didn’t know him to make them want to know more
