Crucified​ in the market square.

It’s Good Friday. As a Humanist, the religious aspect of this holds little interest for me, I merely observe, but as a photographer, I’m interested in the pageant and the spectacle.

So it was, back in 2003, I visited Market Rasen here in Lincolnshire, to see the annual passion play. Sadly this event hasn’t taken place since 2006 I believe.
(should anybody know different I would love to hear about it)

Here are a few images from the day.




  1. I know I shouldn’t, but every time I see such a spectacle I just want to shout: ”Blessed are the cheese-makers!” or maybe stand at the foot of the cross and whistle Always Look on the Bright Side of Life. (Life of Brian)

    I read somewhere that, in the Philippines, apparently, they actually nail the ”volunteers” to the cross.

    ”There’s none so queer as folk.”
