National Theatre Wales, which produced last year’s theatre spectacular with WildWorks, will host a multi-media memory exhibition in the Aberafan Shopping Centre next month.

Everyone and anyone who took part in or saw the production, either in person or online, is invited to contribute photographs or videos of their very best memory of last Easter to the exhibition.

Other items on display will include costumes and props.

Starting on Monday, April 2, people are invited to visit the shopping centre to scan photographs, record their memories, and share anecdotes from The Passion. A shed will be installed in the shopping centre in which the public is invited to film their favourite memory.

The exhibition will be on display on Good Friday, Saturday and Easter Sunday, and entry will be free.

Michael Sheen said in a statement: “Think of the moments that have stayed with you, write them down or paint them, or come and let us record you talking about them.

“If you’ve created anything in response to what you experienced last Easter, send it in so it can be part of this exhibition.

“And let’s remember and celebrate not only what we all helped to make happen a year ago, but also what it has created since, and what it can go on inspiring in the future.”

Anyone wishing to submit content for the exhibition that reflects their best memory of The Passion should email it to

passion@nationaltheatrewales.org, post a blog on National Theatre Wales’s online community at community.nationaltheatrewales.org or send it by post to National Theatre Wales, 30 Castle Arcade, Cardiff, CF10 1BW, by Wednesday, April 4.

Organisers also will be at the shopping centre from Monday, April 2, to collect submissions.
