Winchester Passion

Yesterday evening in Winchester they had a street performance of the Passion. I wasn't particularly interested in going since it was cold, and I thought it would be quite crowded. Still I hoped that it would be successful for the people who spent so much time on it, and the local Hampshire Chronicle reports that they had crowds of about 10,000 so very good for the size of the city.

One thing that I did enjoy were the notices that were placed in shop windows in the week leading up to it.

For more pictures of the actual Passion, David Spender has a good selection of photos in this Flickr set

(P.S. I was pleased to see that Jesus and the thieves were allowed to be fully clothed on the crosses. I saw an excellent outdoor production of Origo Mundi (the Cornish Mystery plays) where Jesus was just wearing the traditional loincloth and everyone in the audience was wrapped up in coats, scarves and hats!)
