Easter brings 'egg dancing' to Blists Hill Victorian Town

Pat Edgar, who may be Britain's hardest-working PR person, tells us that dancing around eggs will be a highlight of Easter Bank Holiday celebrations at Blists Hill Victorian Town, which is near Ironbridge in England's Shropshire. (Dates this year are Friday, April 6 through Monday, April 9.)

"Egg dancing" will take place opposite the Print Shop at Blists Hill. Pat Edgar reports on what to expect, and on how you can participate:

"Once blindfolded, the townsfolk will dance across the street without stepping on eggs that are carefully placed along their route. After the demonstration, visitors will be invited to have a go, with mini-Easter eggs and lolly rewards for all who complete the course without stepping on an egg."

The Blists Hill millinery mavens recommend that ladies and girls should come wearing their "finest Eastern bonnets," since the town's milliner will be judging headware at 2 p.m. in the Pleasure Gardens. (There will be a prize for the winner and a small Easter egg for each youngster who participates.)

Blists Hill, which is one of the Ironbridge Gorge Museums, will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day of the Easter Bank Holiday weekend.
