Mumming in Surrey and Hampshire. And other stuff sometimes.



Bothered and Bewildered


 24 - 25th May

 Presented by Spotlight Theatre, in Colliers Row near Romford.

 In aid of Alzheimer's Society, the performances are during National Dementia Action Week.


 Or you could go and see Toyah, 'Up close and Personal' (ooh-er) in Hornchurch on the 24th. But you'd still need to be near Romford.


Grayshott Folk Club

 Jarrod Dickenson

Saturday 1st June


All the way from Texas - the HomeBase sale must've ended. Supported by the Ben & Jerry . . . sorry . . . Ben & Steve Somers Country Band



Dickens Festival

 Saturday/Sunday 1st/2nd June


Parade, performance and song at the annual Medway Charles Dickens celebrations.


The Pilgrim Morris Summerpole

Fed-up with Brexit polls? Try this one:


 Saturday 4th May: they DID have a pole!

An alarming moment: the discovery that the Pigrim Summer pole had been stolen.


Efforts were made and a replacement supplied in the nick of time.


Even if it does look like the Sorting Hat . . .



The Almanac still up'n' . . . limping



Crookham Village Mummers

This year the Crookham Mummers raised a record-breaking £950 for the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice.

For those who missed it here are a few photos and their statement.

A Grand Effort!


Need Mummers in Norfolk?

The Dragon Hall Mummers are available for hire!


I don't usually put in big commercial events, but they only charge fifty quid and it is for a museum . . . and they've got a Dragon???

[NB They may NOT have a Dragon.]
