Lympstone Mummers Play

The Mummers will tour Lympstone pubs with the Village’s traditional play on the Saturday before Christmas (December 23rd).

We don’t know the origins of our handed down script, but the verse 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. We will stick strictly to the old script, unless the odd ad lib should creep in….

Lympstone Mummers will burst thirstily into the Saddlers at around 8.15, fight their way through the Redwing at 9 and the Swan at 9.30 to be at the Globe by 10pm. A collection will be taken for the Children’s Society.
