Thousands watch Passion of Jesus Performance in Trafalgar Square

The 90-minute production is completely free of charge – a gift to Londoners and visitors.

20,000 people arrived at Trafalgar Square to see the biblical story spectacularly brought to life at the annual performance of The Passion of Jesus in Trafalgar Square on Good Friday.

This moving performance from the Wintershall Players, which commemorates the day Jesus is believed to have been arrested, tried and crucified. A cast of more than 100 actors and volunteers dressed in splendid costumes, as well as horses, donkeys and doves, come together to create an authentic scene in the famous square.

The Silence That the Crowd Sat and Listened in Was Just Extraordinary. We’re in the Center of the Capital of the UK, You Really Don’t Get That Everywhere. This Is Quite Something.

– JAMES BURKE-DUNSMORE

Returning for the eighth year, the show has become a permanent fixture of London’s Easter weekend and attracts tens of thousands of spectators, encompassing all faiths.

There are two 90-minute live performances at 12pm and 3.15pm, which are projected onto big screens so everyone in the square can follow the action.

The Passion of Jesus has a realistic interpretation of the crucifixion, so parental guidance is advised.

Lord Nelson, Britain’s greatest military hero, and the mighty lions that surround him, pay testament to the position of Trafalgar Square at the heart of the capital, the heart of the nation, and, at one time, the heart of an empire that controlled three fifths of the world. More about Trafalgar Square
