April Social Programme

The Passion of Jesus in Trafalgar Square – 15 April 2022
See the biblical story spectacularly brought to life at the annual performance of The Passion of Jesus in Trafalgar Square on Good Friday.

Witness this moving performance from the Wintershall Players, which commemorates the day Jesus is believed to have been arrested, tried and crucified. A cast of more than 100 actors and volunteers, dressed in splendid costumes with horses, doves and a donkey come together to create an impressive scene in the famous square.

Professional actor and artist James Burke-Dunsmore will play Jesus for an 11th and final time this year.

Queen’s birthday 41-gun salute in Hyde Park – 21st April 2022

Ceremonial military guns will go bang at the Tower of London and in the Royal Parks to commemorate the Queen’s birthday.

The basic Royal salute is 21 rounds. In Hyde Park and Green Park, an extra 20 rounds are added because they are Royal Parks. Gun salutes in the Royal Parks usually take place at Noon. Preceding it, the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery will parade their 71 horses and six First World War-era gun carriages out from Wellington Barracks on Birdcage Walk, past Buckingham Palace and up Constitution Hill in the morning to stage the midday salute. In anticipation of their arrival, the Band of the Grenadier Guards will perform celebratory music near the firing position.
