2024 PRODUCTION

Thanks to all who came along and supported the play this year despite it being a very wet week leading up to it! Huge thanks to the Park Keepers who arranged to have the flood water removed! Some quotes from this year’s production:

“Many many congratulations to all the cast, crew and everyone connected with this fantastic performance. Every year the production gets better and better. Congratulations once again”

“Thank you so much, the production was absolutely brilliant. We will never forget it. The hyper-realism of having Jesus and the cast walking through the very gardens which we know so well was a really powerful dimension. So it felt like they were with us in real time, that they had literally made a visit to us in our home city. It was quite surreal in this way”

Next year is the 20th year of there being a Passion Play in the Gardens. The fundraising begins now. If you can donate to the play, that would be amazing. We rely on donations and grants and sadly, have no finance in the pot for next year – yet! We live in faith that we can produce again and for many years to come…

Join our ‘Lost Supper’ appeal: you could donate the cost of a coffee or an evening meal to support our project. This website gets about 5000 viewers per year. If most viewers donated the cost of a coffee, we would be able to cover the entire cost of an entire production. Would it not be great to have 5,000 “feed” our production?

Thank you!
