Re-live the Norwich Passion Play this Easter!

The team behind last year’s Norwich Passion Play has produced a set of resources to enable churches, life groups, schools and youth groups to use a free 13-minute video of the play in the run-up to  Easter 2023.

Last Easter, thousands of people enjoyed an engaging and wide-ranging Passion Play on the streets of Norwich city centre.

“There was Mary Magdalene jumping up and down on a plinth on Hay Hill in Norwich – drawing an expectant crowd, Jesus riding on a bike up to Millennium Plain where he confronted the authorities and he shared a fish and chip last supper with his disciples,” said Keith Morris, chair of Celebrate Norfolk, which organised the play with Saltmine  Theatre company and many local churches. 

“We saw the agonies of the Garden of Gethsemane and Jesus’ dramatic trial in front of the Forum and his crucifixion and death outside St Peter Mancroft Church. And the final joyous scenes inside the church where the disbelieving disciples   saw Jesus come back from the dead in an amazing finale.”

This Easter, the Celebrate Norfolk team have released a specially produced and edited 13-minute video which captures all the key moments of the free performance.

We have created four short video clips of less than one minute that can be shared on your social media channels, along with suggested captions. Please share the Easter story with others! The video is freely available on YouTube at and there are also free resource sheets which can be downloaded from
