On behalf of the Chester Mystery Plays, you are invited to join community performers on the streets of Chester on Good Friday 14th April to witness the story of Christ's Passion.

Starting at the Eastgate Clock at 10.30 a.m. the story unfolds along Eastgate to the Cross, using the famous Rows as a stage for the Last Supper.

It will then pause at the Cross before processing to the Town Hall Square for Gethsemane and the Trial, finishing at the West door of the Cathedral with the Crucifixion.

Community actors will join with the Passion chorus drawn from the Chester Mystery Plays, church choirs and Theatre in the Quarter.

There is also the opportunity to hear Matt Baker's extraordinary music from the last three productions of the Mystery Plays.

Join them for this very special event — it will last no more than one hour and is completely free or charge.
