3. The Passion of Jesus at Trafalgar Square
The Wintershall players will return this Easter to perform the Passion of Jesus at Trafalgar Square. One hundred actors will be coming together to take part in a moving, Biblical reenactment of Jesus’ last days. Starting at 12pm and 3:15pm the open-air production will also be shown on two large screens so everyone can get a good view - though if you do want a seat up close to real-life action, then we recommend getting there 40 minutes early to grab a seat. Also, it's worth noting to anyone intending to go with children that the performance will be portraying the crucifixion in a realistic manner, so some scenes may be intense.
