Alan Hillary Events managed this ambitious project which staged an innovative and contemporary revival of Durham’s medieval mystery play cycle for a modern audience.

The event took place over three evenings and across three locations in Durham City beginning at The Gala Theatre, moving to the Cathedral and culminating on The Sands where a huge, festival-style stage was erected along the banks of the river Wear. Thousands of people witnessed what was a major theatrical landmark for 2010
