This Easter sees the 3rd performance of the St Neots Passion Play on the streets of St Neots, Cambridgeshire.

The St Neots Passion Play was first produced in 2010, this festival of drama, dance and song was produced by the churches of the town,  with support from local councils, as well as using the skills of many talented actors, dancers, singers, musicians and support staff from across the area. The show was repeated in 2015 and now – 5 years further on – the show will come to St Neots this coming Easter Sunday afternoon, taking place in the Market Square, St Anselm’s Place and Riverside Park.

Both previous plays have attracted over 1000 people, and the event is totally free. It starts with the triumphal procession over the Town Bridge into the Market Square; from there, the story moves on to St Anselms’s Place (by the Rowing Club) for the moving scenes of Gethsemane; returns to the Market Square for the trial and crucifixion of Jesus; and then concludes with the events of the first Easter Sunday in Riverside Park. The play attempts to be a faithful re-enactment of the first Easter, but it’s not a ‘religious’ event purely for Christians; rather an event to which the whole community is welcome, whether you have Christian beliefs or not.
