The Devizes passion play is no longer being performed. If you would like to start a new play in your town or city, please contact the Passion Trust for help, advice and funding.

Two roman soldiers put Jesus on the cross in a scene from the Devizes Passion Play.

In March 2002 and 2012 the Devizes Church Community came together under the auspices of the Devizes Partnership of Churches to perform a Passion Play. The next performance will be in 2022 and every ten years thereafter.

Members of most of the churches contributed to the production in one way or another. It was performed as a promenade performance through the streets of the town. It started on the Green with the arrest of Jesus and culminated in his crucifixion in the Market Place. The Passion Play was performed in front of an audience of about 1000 people.
