"The Pace Egg play was traditionally performed each year on Good Friday in the Upper Calder Valley area. It was a similar to other mummers plays but the actors would collect eggs as payment due to the season. Pace-egging can also be the act of painting eggs using pressed leaves and natural dyes which would then be used for egg rolling - he whose eggs reached the furthest point in the one piece would be the winner!"
