The Abram Pace Egg Players will be performing their wonderful interpreation of the age old tradition, along with special effects, witty repartee and more killings than a Quentin Tarantino movie this week. Where and when?

Weds. Swinton Tour - White Swan - Park Inn - White Lion. Starting 9pm
Thursday. Westhougton and Environs. Starting 8:45pm. Bridge - Hart Common - Railway - Bull and Butcher.
Friday. Lancaster maritime festival. Not sure of the start time. (See a progran while you are there for heavens sake. Want everything on a plate?) 2 performances behind the maritime museum. 1 outside the Three Mariners and some other 'unofficial' performances on the way:-)

Cheers

I will have to settle for last years video, it's too long a train ride from Ontario. Hope it does not rain on your parade and there are dry places to die for everyone. And don't forget to turn off your mobile this year Dave, it's terrible when people get phone calls just at the exiting part.

Didn't get done last year due to people not being available and various other things conspiring against us but...

We are back! Only 2 tours this year Weds 19th around the Westhoughton area and Thursday 20th (Maundy Thursday) around the environs of Abram. But they will be good uns:-)

I am the Doctor this year and am replacing my fighting sword with healing hands to re-erect my member, er, no, ressurect this member of my family. That's it!

We have not positively confirmed the pubs yet but as soon as we do I will post an itinery.

Cheers

BTW - I have a wmv of the whole play if anyone is interested - 165Mb so it would take some transfering. Anyone have anywhere for me to post it publicly?

Do you think it could be put on a CD or DVD?

I looked through the whole wmv and it is the play peformed 3 times - Se each one should only be approx 55Mb. I will pick the best and try to post it somewhere. Yes it could be put on CD easy enough Foolestroupe - PM me your address and I will mail it you. I also have footage of the Bacup Coconut Dance which I can add to it.

Cheers

I would have thought that Yutube would be the place to put something such as that.
Obvoiusly there would be some file conversion, but I presume the web site provides something which will convert to the type of file they use.
Quack!

Why not send an enquiry, in the first instance, to the Traditional Drama Research Group - Folk Play Research home page is at http://www.folkplay.info/index.htm

I note there are no videos of plays on the site, at least as yet, although there are photographs. Might be good to suggest uploading videos, or providing links to YouTube if you decide to go that route.

Dave, is the play going to be performed in Hindley? No2 son (Nick) who is TC in the Warburton Souling Play now lives in Hindley and I'm sure he'd like to compete in the drinking stakes!

Also, if you're around on Good Friday on your bicycle it's the Mobberley 8. Beer will be drunk, songs will be sung, tunes will be played, and bicycles will get fallen-off. Again. It would be great if you could be there - you would enjoy it!

Cheers,

John

Hi Dave, If your 3 versions are like the one's which I filmed at the Lancaster Maritime Festival in 2004, then they are all different. It's not that they forget the words or anything, they just change bits here and there.
Try not to run into any young drunken hooligans this year as well, or just in case get those toe irons sharpened and set.
Congratulations on your promotion to Dave MD, break a leg.
Regards to all JohnB

Dave, Have a great time! I used to live in Higher Ince, in one of the canal-side cottages, when I lived there I had no idea where all the folky things happened round there! - didn't have a mudcat back 20 years ago!
Cheers, Lucy

Thanks for the good wishes one and all. I will pass them around appropriately:-)

John J - I think the Abram tour is pretty close to Hindley. I'm sure that when we do the Abram dance, part of the tour is bits of Hindley - and we walk it starting and finishing at the Dover Lock. Last Saturday in June for future reference. If Son #2 fancies dancing or performing then we are always looking for new recruits as well.

Cheers

Dave
