History Brought To Life

One Good Friday

The Mission of One Good Friday is to perform the Wintershall Passion Play in UK cities and towns on Good Friday, the 10th of April 2020.

The famous Wintershall Passion play has been performed in Trafalgar Square London on Good Friday every year since 2010. This is an awe inspiring fullscale re-enactment of the Passion of Jesus including a moving crucifixion and resurrection. This has been watched by an estimated 120,000 people in the Square over the past 9 years with almost 300,000 people watching the performance in 2018 through a Live Stream in many countries across the world.

Several cities and towns have already committed to this wonderful project. Join us and help us to bring the Easter story to life for everyone. 

Join In

Each city or town will need you to join in.

Contact your local city or town today and volunteer to be a part of this great community project. They need cast members, production staff, administration staff, fundraisers or anyone with spare time who is inspired to join in.

One Good Friday 2020








Wintershall Involvement

Wintershall hopes to encourage cities and towns to perform their own Passion plays in 2020. This would be a lasting legacy for each community. Wintershall offers a Passion script, a comprehensive Production Manual and help and advice to each city or town.

The cast, production team and volunteers would be from the community pulling together to make a difference and to share the story. Once performed in 2020, the Passion play could be a lasting community project, being performed for years to come.



The Archbishop of Canterbury, The Most Reverend and Right Honourable Dr Justin Welby said: “Passion Plays have been a feature of the life of our country since the Middle Ages, and for good reason: there is no greater story than that of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I hope and pray that this Easter, you can be caught up in the story of the love of God for the world in the person of Jesus. Come and See”   

The Archbishop of Westminster, His Eminence Cardinal Vincent Nichols said: “This Good Friday, I recall some of the last words of Pope St Paul II: ‘We adore and bless the mystery of the Cross of the Son of God, because it was from his death that new hope for humanity was born.’ I warmly commend this performance of The Passion of Jesus to you, and thank all those who have had a part in bringing it about.”
