BURY Pace Eggers will mark their 40th year by getting out and about this Easter with their popular mixture of drama, song and good humour.

They will be performing this Saturday and Sunday at various locations. During the 10-minute routine, one of the main characters is “killed” before a disreputable doctor administers a brew to restore his life.

Pace Egg literally means Easter egg and these plays, dating back to the middle ages, are traditionally performed around Easter time. A lot of the plays died out after the First World War when many of the men who performed them where killed in action.

The Bury Pace Egg play was revived in the 1969 and is based on one which was performed in the Radcliffe area. Last year they raised £850 for the charity, SCOPE.

They can be seen on Saturday between 10.30am and 3.30pm in Ramsbottom Market and Bury town centre and on Sunday, between 1.30pm and 5pm, at Walshaw, Affetside Hawkshaw, Summerseat and Nangreaves.
