A powerful and deeply moving telling of the last week of Christ’s life on earth, ‘The Newark Passion’ played to two sell out audiences in April 2011 and 2012 and raised over £2500 for local charities. It received a great response, including from the Dean, John Guille, who said: “It is wonderful that the Newark Passion is coming to the Minster at the beginning of Lent. It will be a most fitting preparation for us as a community before our observance of Holy Week and Easter and we’re privileged to host it in the Cathedral.’

A play by the community for the community, the play is performed in the wonderful surroundings of Southwell Minster and set to an epic soundtrack. It is the perfect way to mark the beginning of Lent.
