Middleton Guardian - - FRONT PAGE -

THE Pace Egg play is back in Mid­dle­ton on Easter Mon­day 2018.

The new ‘King Of Eng­land’ will be out and about in the town on Easter Mon­day, ac­com­pa­nied by his ‘en­tourage’ – in­clud­ing St Ge­orge, The Turk­ish Cham­pion, Cap­tain Slasher and The Doc­tor.

Last year, sadly, saw the ab­di­ca­tion of the pre­vi­ous long-serv­ing king ‘King Derek’ and the hand­ing over of the crown to ‘King Robert’

The peo­ple of Mid­dle­ton are cor­dially in­vited to join the merry-mak­ing and pay due homage to his royal high­ness, as he makes his progress through the town.

There will be per­for­mances of the Mid­dle­ton Pace Egg Play at the usual lo­ca­tions as fol­lows.

At Dusty Miller at noon; Old Roe­buck at 12.30pm; Bri­tan­nia Inn at 1pm; Har­bord Har­bord (Wether­spoons) at 1.30pm; New Inn at 2.pm; Old Boar’s Head at 2.30pm and The Ring o’ Bells at 3pm.

This will be fol­lowed by Egg Rolling on the hill be­side the Par­ish Church of St Leonard.

Chil­dren are en­cour­aged to bring their hard boiled dec­o­rated eggs to take part in this an­cient cus­tom, said to rep­re­sent the rolling away of the stone from the tomb of Je­sus.
