Thousands of people from all ages and cultures turned up to Leicester city centre to watch a re-enactment of Jesus's last days.
Watch the Christ in the Centre play come to life and take a look at the pictures...
More than 80 actors and musicians put on a powerful performance of the Good Friday story in a play produced by a Christian drama group from Kibworth called the SWORD theatre company.

Bank Holiday Good Friday was the fifth year the play has taken place in Leicester city centre.
Around 10,000 people from Leicestershire and beyond, witnessed the event which took place in different parts of the city centre.
The procession began at the Leicester Cathedral and moved on to the Town Hall Square, Greyfriars, Berridge Street and Horsefair Street before they travelled on to the final act of the performance.
Actor and Director James Burke-Dunsmore performed as Christ for the third year running.
He said, "The drama of Christ in the Centre is very powerful - even in rehearsal."
While this may be the story of one man, it is certainly no one-man-show. James says that the very special nature of the performance, "is in large part due to the effort and commitment the rest of the cast put into creating the drama."
