The Pace Egg Play
at risk of not being performed this year

Our Folklore Group have played a significant role in keeping the Pace Egg event going over the years in Heptonstall and other local places.

The team are finding themselves held back this year by a lack of players and are therefore sending out a call for people interested in stepping into the breach. The event is on Good Friday 15th April 2022. So, if you are interested or know someone who may want to join in, please get in touch following the links below.

Expressions of interest can be made to the Support the Midgley Pace Egg page on Facebook or John Billingsley can pass on messages to Robin Lord if sent to john-billingsley@mypostoffice.co.uk
