Pace Egg Play goes Online
Thursday, 9 April 2020
This year with the COVID-19 Virus and the country-wide lockdown making the traditional Pace Egg play sadly impossible, the players have decided to use 21st century technology to bring you the centuries old play and a one-off play will be streamed online at 11am on Friday 10th April 2020.
The online play will be streamed at:
This year is the 41st Annual Heptonstall Pace Egg play since the 'good' doctor himself revived the play in 1979. You will see some fresh blood for our great hero to spill along with wit and humour* from familiar faces.
So, please, grab a bottle of Nip Nap, and let it run down your tip tap while you join us once more - even in these strange times!
*Wit and humour is not guaranteed
As usual we are raising well needed funds for two charities. This year the two charities are Community Foundation for Calderdale (charity no. 1002722) and Calderdale Royal Hospital Childrens Ward (charity no. 00106)
We know times are hard and money is scarce however please donate whatever you can afford.
