Chester City Passion – Good Friday 2017

Following last year’s huge success Chester Mystery Plays and Theatre in the Quarter have joined once more with Churches Together in Chester City Centre and Link Up to produce a dramatised ‘Way of the Cross’ in the streets of Chester on Good Friday morning.

Friday 14 April, 2017 at 10.30am

The performance will start at the Eastgate Street clock with Jesus’ entry to Jerusalem and the Last Supper at the Cross. It will then process towards Town Hall Square for Gethsemane and the Trial, finishing at the West door of the Cathedral with the Crucifixion.

Community actors will be joined with with the Passion chorus, drawn from Chester Mystery Plays, Theatre in Quarter, church choir and community performers and Chester schools. The engrossing performance will feature Matt Baker’s captivating music from the last three productions of the Mystery Plays, and the whole event is an exciting prelude to the next cycle of the plays in 2018.

Join us for this very special journey – it will last no more than 45 minutes and is completely FREE OF CHARGE.
