Mumming in Surrey and Hampshire. And other stuff sometimes.



Stay All Ye Open Stage?

Friday 24th April.

The Music Institute's own site says 'cancelled', but it's been proposed that it will happen on-line . . . and it will.

It'll be 'broadcast' over Zoom. It's never been done by the organisers (ye organisers?) before, so teething troubles are . . . possible.

Numbers are limited to fifteen performers, so get in touch to apply: SOON.

'Audience': they need your email address in advance, so they can send you the meeting code and password required to sign in to the event. Also SOON!



Oxford Folk Weekend

Parts of this went ahead, prompting the suggestion of another on-line folk festival. Apparently they'll be running a straw-poll. Theoretically on their Facebook page, but not yet. (It's not on their own website either - but they're probably still clearing up after last weekend.)

"Summer".



The Pilgrim Morris Summerpole

Unlikely to happen this year - from last year:


 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 . . .




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.]
