The Passion Trust Conference brings together key people who perform, produce and support passion plays around the country. It is an excellent way to network and connect with others. As well as promoting community between the various productions,  the Passion Trust invites distinguished speakers including directors, producers, academics, actors, writers, fundraisers and sponsors to inspire and equip passion plays in the UK. The conference includes advice and tips for reaching a wide audience, successful fundraising and marketing, and effective community involvement.
