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.

No doubt we'll see you at Saltburn Folk Festival. Seems we're not doing the Friday night Folk Club singaround this year but we will be about with a play on Sunday 11th August, at the station Portico, at a couple of concert spots and maybe the Cons Club Garden. (last year there was nobody there)

We need new members. If you're not too far from Darlo, have a good voice but can't act why not get in touch? NB if you do fall in combat you will be brought back to life again. Promise.

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

Wed July 24th at Cleasby Village Hall
