One Good Friday 2020 (OGF 2020) will bring the Easter story to life, engaging the community with a message of unity and hope. Two free and accessible open air performances on Friday April 10th, a town trail, concessions stalls available throughout the day, and music on the Carfax Bandstand will make this an attractive full day event for local residents and visitors. Horsham is one of only eight venues selected to stage the Wintershall Passion Play for the first time in 2020. Horsham District Council fully supports this event, working in partnership with the OGF 2020 team by contributing ongoing practical and technical assistance. Thousands are expected to gather on the day for this great community event. The Horsham Passion Play is being produced by Horsham Churches Together with a community-led cast and crew of over 70 volunteers who are being professionally coached and directed twice weekly. Other local organisations are helping with producing props and promotion of the event.

What we'll deliver:

  • Deliver a free accessible cultural experience
  • Free coaching for volunteer actors from the community
  • Provide opportunity to take part in a community project
  • Educate about the Easter story

Why it's a great idea:

Horsham District Council's Year of Culture 2019 showcased many artistic and cultural events. the Horsham Passion Play follows on from this, providng an inclusive opportunity to 'have a go' at a creative endeavour, free of charge in local accessible venues. There is a lack of awareness and knowledge of the Easter story. Passion Plays have been a feature of the life of our country since the Middle ages being an established means of presenting the Christian message that embraces all denominations but is also for those of different faiths or none. It is both educational and historic. Using Horsham's Carfax will bring people together thus unifying, celebrating and enhancing civic pride. The project provides the opportunity for people in a large, growing town to get to know one another across the generations and ethnicities, working together as a team, enhancing community cohesion and enhancing employability skills. Amateur and professional volunteers have the opportunity for a new chall
