Darlington Mummers are a revivalist team but with our own 50 year tradition presenting Mummers Plays at Folk Clubs and Festivals; while for many earlier years we simply appeared out of the blue in local pubs. Our stalwart play was long the Pace Egg from Lancaster but for many years now we have performed also a Wooing Play, a Souling Play (featuring Dick the 'oss) and plays from as far as Netley Abbey, Hampshire and as near as Haughton le Skerne. We have also a fine Tup and an Old 'Oss custom. Whilst ever light hearted we are careful never to turn the traditional play into a pantomime.

We're planning to do the Plough Play at Saltburn Festival this year 2018 (because it's turn has come round again) We are however short of someone to play the horse which has no lines, just a cossy to wear over your clothes.
If you might help out midday to teatime Sunday 12th August we'd be delighted.
Click Here to see the Plough Play cossys including the sacking horse (and sizeable wooden head, often mistaken).

We meet at the Britannia, Archer St., Darlington DL3 6LR, overlooking the ring road as it joins Bondgate.

Meetings vary. Depends what's on and how much practice we think we need. Next Meeting

We need new members. If you're not too far from Darlo, are male, have a good voice but can't act why not get in touch?

TBA
