26 February 2012

PORT Talbot MagNet will be working with National Theatre Wales this Easter to produce the official souvenir programme for The Passion. This is the second time the local news service has been invited to partner the award-winning theatre company.

The programme will contain all the information about the plans for Passion events happening in Port Talbot around Easter 2012 as well as highlights and memories from last year’s production.

Michael Sheen will write the opening address and the programme will be an essential guide to what’s happening over the weekend, including the Passion: Memory exhibition and the screening of the film Gospel Of Us.

Magnet is appealing for contributions from photographers, writers, performers and artists who saw, took part in, or were inspired by, The Passion, for a section called My Passion. Local people’s memories and anecdotes of the production will be welcome.

The programme will be funded by advertising, and Magnet is now taking enquiries from local businesses who would like to feature in the unique souvenir programme. The programme will be freely distributed in the centre of Port Talbot in the week leading up to Easter.

Email your memories and photographs to or join the Facebook group – the deadline for submissions is Friday, 9 March . Anyone wishing to advertise can contact Helen at
