The Passion of Jesus is returning to Trafalgar Square for Easter for its 11-year with thousands expecting to watch the special show.

The Good Friday event shows a full-scale re-enactment created by the Wintershall Players with a cast of more than 100 actors and volunteers dressed in costumes.

The event has been running for 11 years now and has since become a permanent fixture of London's Easter weekend with many travelling to Trafalgar Square to watch the Passion of Jesus.

Discussing the event, the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan said: “The Passion of Jesus welcomes thousands of Londoners of all backgrounds to Trafalgar Square to enjoy a live reenactment of the story of Jesus’s final days and resurrection.

"This inspiring performance has become an Easter tradition in the heart of our capital as we build a fairer and better London for all.”
