The Pace Egg play is not unique to Heptonstall but it is one of only a few still performed today. Good Friday, 11th April in Weavers Square . NB times are still TBC, but 2019's times were 11.15 am Heptonstall Pace Egg 12.30 pm Heptonstall Pace Egg 2.00 pm Heptonstall Pace Egg 3.00pm Midgley Pace Egg 4.00pm Heptonstall Pace Egg The Hillmillies will be dancing between the plays, The organisers reserve the right to change the times of, or cancel, any performances. In the play St George takes on contenders such as Bold Slasher, the Black Prince of Paradine and Hector. The costumes, in particular the strange headgear comprising a towering edifice garlanded with flowers, peculiar to the Calder Valley; are as much a part of the fun as the action. Violent sword fights predominate but, as ever, good triumphs over evil. Visitors are asked to not bring their cars into the village as parking is very limited. There are regular buses to Heptonstall from Hebden Bridge and visitors can walk up to Heptonstall via the Buttress, the steep cobbled pathway by Hebden Bridge Town Hall. (Please note this is a demanding walk!)
