Proper Easter, No bunnies or eggs.

By philtaylorphoto  
8th April 2017. A cast of around 50 actors from a variety of backgrounds performed a Passion Play to an uudience of thousands in Manchester Cathedrall Gardens on the hottest day of the year. They were accompanied by Manchester Inspirational Voices Choir led by Wayne Ellingtton. (Winners of Songs of Praise Choir of the Year). Jesus was played by Rob Slater, a 59 yr old salesman from Bolton.

I'll probably get 'cancelled' for a culturally unacceptable portrayal of violence now...

Yes, the real Easter for those who believe. It's going the same way as Christmas now, a festival for commercial exploitation.

Great image of what seems like a very good play.

Even for those who do not believe, it's a graphic portrayal of what happens when principle meets power, and a warning to the powerful that we are not all made in their image...
