Mummers Play

Did you know we also Mummer?

In our Mummer’s Play you will witness the duel between brave King George and the valiant Turkish Night.

Originally performed at Christmas time these shows where put on by the working class folk trying to earn a penny or two. They would call at wealthy peoples houses and perform the play to all inside.

The story has everything, humor, sorrow, love, death and some resurrection. It is a play for all ages lasting approximately 30 min.
