Lympstone Mummers!

LYMPSTONE MUMMERS – Saturday 22nd December

Saddlers 8.15pm

Redwing 9 pm

Swan 9.30 pm

Globe 10 pm

The Mummers will tour Lympstone pubs with the Village’ traditional play on the Saturday before Christmas.  We don’t know the origins of our handed-down script, but the verses of ‘Tom Bowling’ sung at the end would have been well known to Lympstone fishermen some 200 years ago.  Like most Mummers’ plays, ours compresses England’s history – from the Crusades to Empire – into a noisy ten minutes of comical defeat and rude revival of past foes.  As always, we will stick strictly to our script, unless the odd ad lib should creep in…

Lympstone Mummers will burst thirstily into the Saddlers at around 8.15pm, fight their way through the Redwing at 9pm and the Swan at 9.30pm to be at the Globe by 10pm.

A collection will be taken for the Children’s Society.
