Children across the UK have been getting involved in Easter celebrations. At the Ironbridge Gouge Museum in Shropshire kids took part in a traditional Easter dance.

The dance which formed a key part of Victorian celebrations involves blindfolding participants and dancing around eggs trying to break as few as possible. Participants in the modern version met with mixed success.
