Wintershall Players return with their huge (for which read horses, donkeys, doves and a cast of over 100) open-air re-enactment of 'The Passion of Jesus' on Good Friday, featuring volunteers from in and around London. Huge crowds are expected but big screens will ensure nobody misses any crucial plot twists.

I have been to see this play at Trafalgar Square twice now.  It is so good to see the Easter story played out in the centre of London.  It is very crowded and you have to see on the cold concrete floor of Trafalgar Square, but it is worth it.  There is a big screen that you can watch if you can't see the action directly.  Most people are happy to budge up so that as many people can enjoy it as possible.


It is good the way they make use of the whole square - you get Roman soldiers suddenly appearing at the top of the steps in front of the National Gallery and marching down to Nelson's Column.  Someone else arrives on a horse.  It is quite surreal seeing Roman soldier, apostles and Pharisees milling around the square afterwards posing for pictures.


The highlight was when Jesus declared 'I am risen' and the crowd cheered and clapped!
