UK pub history and historical Street directory

If you fancy an amazing 'free' evening of entertainment over the Easter weekend, there are three performances of the Passion Play in Hornchurch, alongside the Queens Theatre. The passion Play has been enacted for the past twenty years, about every five years, and is a very professional performance, poignant and free. If you can make it, it is a very moving piece of theatre, of the last few days of Jesus, and his resurrection. The play starts about 7.30 on Good Friday, Saturday and Easter Sunday. There is ample parking in the Queens Theatre, and Sainsbury car parks, both are very close to the performances.
