Over 2000 onlookers braved the bitterly cold temperatures on Good Friday to watch the first ever Passion Play staged in Kent.
The dramatic presentation depicting the Passion of Jesus Christ, his trial, suffering and death was performed in the shadow of the castle walls, and moved through the heart of the crowd on Castle Lawn.
I was impressed with the whole production, the acting and the dedication of the cast. I was also impressed with the enormous crowd who had gathered to support and share the experience.
This certainly was something very good for Tonbridge and hopefully it will be a start of a new Easter tradition for the town.
