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 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.
