A passion play will be held in Reedham, near Acle, in which the betrayal, trial and crucifixion of Jesus will be portrayed in five locations in the village.

Held on Good Friday, it will be performed by a team of villagers and people from surrounding villages as an outdoor play with live music and sets.

The day starts at noon with refreshments at Reedham Village Hall.

People will then walk being led by marshals or take a free minibus to Reedham Primary School, where the performance begins at 1.30pm with Jesus' entry into Jerusalem.

Scenes of the play will then take place within easy short walking distance, ending with the crucifixion in Ferry farmyard on Station Road.

The play will be over by about 3pm, when people can walk or take the minibus back to the village hall for teas and coffees.

It is free, with donations for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
