It is with a sad heart that we have taken the difficult decision to cancel The Shrewsbury Passion Play that was going to be held on Good Friday – 10th April 2020.
It comes after the Government announced unprecedented peacetime measures to try to control the spread of the virus, with restrictions on public gatherings, transport and working. Our life is going to be less characterised by attendance at church on Sunday, and more characterised by the prayer and the service we offer to each other each day.
We are hoping, as part of the Shrewsbury Mystery Plays, to have the opportunity in the future, when it is safe to do so to have other religious and secular theatrical performances at different locations around the town.
