The Pace Egg Play

A new print (about bloody time I hear you cry!) just in time for Easter. It is about the Yorkshire tradition of Pace Egging plays. It was traditionally performed each year on Good Friday in the Upper Calder Valley area. As far as I know it is still going strong! 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!The print is 5 colours, a limited edition of 25 and is £65. Email me if you are interested in purchasing one: alice@alicepattullo.comI love this old footage from the yorkshire Film Archive of a Pace egg play from the 60's - it proved very inspiring!THE PACE EGG
