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.

Netley Abbey at Ulverston 2010

We did the Netley Abbey Christmas! Play at Saltburn Portico for the Saltburn Festival in August and at the Emmanuel Hall and probably the best show to quite a full house at the Community Centre (the old church with the slopy tower) Not the cons club garden again as very few folks there. Next outing maybe the Welly just before Christmas. Cossys as above but the pic is from Ulverston.

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 18th Sept
