Let's get CROSS about Easter
Worcester Passion Play will be distributing 1000 Hot Cross Buns to Worcestershire hospitals, hospices and hostels on Good Friday 2021, pointing forward to the good news of Easter.
Did you know that the cross on the bun represents the crucifixion and the spices used in the cooking represents the spices used to embalm the body of Christ.

As a community project we are not funded and depend on your support to make it work. The Worcester Passion Play is a registered charity and we would be grateful for any donation to enable us to develop this unique event in the interests of the community.

The re-enactment of the Passion of Jesus including a moving crucifixion and resurrection has been watched by an estimated 180,000 people in Trafalgar Square over the past 9 years. The performance has been streamed with an additional 300,000 people watching the performance online in many countries across the world.
