Passion Trust on Zoom

The cancellation of all the Passion Plays has been one of the great disappointments of 2020. Guidance from SLUA Event Safety Consultation suggests that open theatres/performances where social distancing can be maintained will be the first to re-open towards the end of the year.

The Passion Trust is organising seminars on Zoom in October to discuss all aspects of putting on Passion Plays in 2021 in the light of the challenges and responsibilities emerging from Covid19 and lockdown.

If you would like to join a seminar please email us here.

Free Cross and Roman Soldiers for Hire

We have a free cross kindly made available by the people from Reedham Passion Play. The cross was built to hold a large man and to hoist up from the ground very smoothly. It was designed and made by a boat-building team and is 3 meters high, almost 2 meters across and comes with instructions. If you would like it please contact us. It will need to be collected from Norfolk.

As usual, there are professional Roman soldiers in full kit for hire this Easter as well. Please contact LEG II AVG alisagladiatrix@hotmail.com or phone 07765879610.


We have more information about Roman soldiers and crosses on our website at www.passiontrust.org/expertise/roman-soldiers and much more help in our Support and Resources.
