The Mark Drama is a fast-paced, innovative way of experiencing the Gospel of Mark and communicating it to others, performed as theatre-in-the-round. ​

Staged at Blackburn Cathedral on Saturday, February 29 and Sunday, March 1, the cast will be led by the Bishop of Blackburn, Rt Rev. Julian Henderson; the Bishop of Burnley, Rt Rev. Philip North and the Bishop of Lancaster, Rt Rev. Dr Jill Duff, along with some other members of the Bishop’s Leadership Team including the Dean of Blackburn, The Very Rev. Peter Howell-Jones.

Collectively they will be creating an impactful dramatisation of Mark’s Gospel produced in partnership with Buckshaw Village Church near Chorley.

Since its inception The Mark Drama, created by Andrew Page, has been performed right across Europe and throughout the world.

Speaking today Bishop Julian said: “It’s always good to be able to impart the Gospel in new and different ways and this is an exciting and innovative production. As amateur actors we will be trusting wholly in God to shine the light of His message through us!

“I hope as many people as possible will take the opportunity to attend and – importantly – to bring a friend with them who may not have heard the Gospel message.”

There will be two performances of the Mark Drama; on Saturday, February 29, 2020 and Sunday March 1, 2020 with both starting at 7.30pm in the Cathedral.
