The Liverpool Passion Plays are back!

Join us on Palm Sunday, 2 April,  for the return of the Liverpool Passion Plays. 

The Liverpool Passion Plays tell the story of the Passion of Christ, including Jesus' arrest, trial and crucifixion.

Using the Cathedral’s architecture and artwork as a backdrop, the audience watch the story of Jesus unfold, starting as a young boy, and witnessing his entry into Jerusalem, his betrayal by Judas, and his trial and crucifixion.

The performance will use the vast central space of Liverpool Cathedral as a backdrop with the crucifixion scene taking place on our very own Calvary, high above the audience, on the Dulverton Bridge.

The performance combines music, script and liturgy to demonstrate what Christ's suffering and resurrection means for us today. The performance has been put together by cast, crew and musicians who are volunteers from the cathedral’s congregations, choirs and young peoples’ groups, and the public.’

Entry is free but we welcome your donations to support our choir tour fund.
