Preston Passion crowds to line the streets
Crowds are expected to gather for a spectacular production of the Easter story in Preston city centre today.
The Passion was last staged in 2012 as part of the Guild, when thousands took part in a choreographed event at the bus station (pictured), watched by millions live on BBC One.
The production will be revived with a new set of actors today, with a procession from Winckley Square to the Flag Market.
The theatre promenade will last one-and-a-half hours, with the entire performance supported by 140-strong Preston Concert Band led by musical director Graham Hickey.
It starts from Winckley Square at 11.30am.
