Tomorrow is Good Friday, it’s also the day when many from across the city come together for the Preston Passion. There’s quite a few people from FFMC taking part.
This is how it’s described on the BBC:
Fern Britton presents a ground-breaking live event marking Good Friday with a contemporary and ambitious exploration of the Passion story. A unique combination of spectacular mass participation performance and three original recorded dramas (starring Samantha Bond, Tom Ellis, Christine Bottomley, Pooky Quesnel, Ronald Pickup and Paul Barber) in moving stories based in Preston past and present, drawing on the enduring universal themes of the story of Christ’s condemnation and crucifixion. Traditional Holy Week choral music also combines with a modern day celebration of Easter as Heather Small sings live, marking the historic Preston Guild festivities.
If you haven’t got a ticket then you can watch it on BBC One from 12:00.
Although the description says that Heather Small will be singing she has, unfortunately had to pull due to illness fortunately Jamelia has stepped in.
