The Great North Passion

The Great North Passion event held today, Good Friday, in Bents Park in South Shields, England involved the telling of the Easter Passion story by collaborating with local artists who were commissioned to transform metal shipping containers into artistic works reflecting many regions and issues from around the northeast. The 60 containers were then placed in the shape of a giant crucifix in the Park where the public were invited to explore the installation and enjoy the occasion.

The hour-long event brought in thousands of spectators to enjoy the show which featured performances by Alexandra Burke.
