Christ in the Centre
Christ in the Centre – Leicester (6th April). Now in its 10th year, Christ in the Centre will again bring the true meaning of the Easter story to life on the streets of Leicester with a dramatic presentation of Christ’s teaching, trial, passion, crucifixion and resurrection.
A procession down the High Street to Humberstone Gate will begin the depiction of the Gospel. Apart from the lead role, the entire cast is made up of local amateur actors and singers from local churches.
Audiences approaching 10,000 gather to watch the compelling performance each year. With staging and sound systems they ensure everyone can hear clearly or watch the British Sign Language interpreter.
Last year’s lead actor Walt Kissack said: “It is astonishing to look out from the stage at 10,000 people and see their reaction – how enthused and appreciative they are. Sharing this celebration was wonderful”.
