A dramatised sequence of poems featuring impressions of, and conversations with, Jesus by those who met him is to be one of the highlights on Holy Week in Garstang.

The presentation of The Witnesses by poet Clive Sansom will take place at St Thomas’ Church on Palm Sunday, March 24, at 6.30pm.

The performers will be Ted Dempsey and Avril Bevan. They will speak the poems of the Biblical characters who interacted with Jesus at various stages of his life and in the days and hours before his death.

The Witnesses is open to everyone, not just churchgoers. Admission is free, though there will be a retiring collection.
